Helicopter Tactics Program

By Staff Writer | February 5, 2009

The European Defence Agency (EDA) awarded AgustaWestland a contract to conduct a six-month Helicopter Tactics Program (HTP) implementation study. As part of the U.K.-France helicopter initiative, the EDA took the lead in coordinating training among its participating member states. The HTP implementation study is a key part of the initial work. It includes a training analysis across all participating member states, establishing a common operational task list for support helicopter crews deploying on operations. In addition, the study will seek to catalogue and quantify total training capability and capacity within participating member states, as well as identifying best-practice methodology for adapting to lessons learnt from operational theatres. Drawing on experience from the previous feasibility study, this work will also outline an initial training syllabus. For related news
