Kabul (BNA) Training of the Afghan pilots for the newly-deployed UH-60 helicopters is gaining momentum as the international allies of Afghanistan have stepped up efforts to the capabilities of the Afghan national defense and security forces.
“UH-60 training is gaining momentum at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan. Afghan Air Force pilots had the opportunity to take their very first orientation flight in their Black-Hawks October 3!” the NATO-led Resolute Support mission said a short statement posted online.
The statement further added that “Coming from the Mi-17, the Airmen familiarized themselves with the numerous gauges and different locations of switches throughout the cockpit.”
“Within a few weeks of training, the #aviators will take the controls as they gain proficiency on this complex weapons system,” the alliance said.
