EDA Helicopter Tactics Course


I know of a couple Bundesheer AB-212 crews and their aircraft (when doing the practical side of the course in Sweden etc) attend the synthetic / simulator side of it at Linton-On-Ouse. Thus after closure where will the course be held? Here is another thought - will it even be held in UK?

Anyone know of a date yet for Linton’s possible demise ? I was on course there in 1962 and, for nostalgia’s sake, would like to try and fly in (yep, still flying) before the runways become hardcore for yet another motorway.

I’m sorry to respond on this and not the sad state of the DIO, but the Army did the RAF Regiments beloved Op TESSERAL role in Iraq. After the RAF Regt could maintain a cleared airstrip for the Hercs in Al Amarah, the Army used an armoured infantry Battalion with Warrior to much better effect.

do I need to mention the joke that was the ‘battle of bastion’
