IAF helicopter squadrons complete huge training drill in Greece

The Israel Air Force (IAF) recently completed a large-scale overseas training exercise in Greece for its combat and transport helicopters.

The exercise saw dozens of air crews gain valuable flight experience, which can later be applied in real future short and long-range missions, a senior IAF officer told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday.

Capt. Gil [full name withheld for security reasons], head of the IAF’s Overseas Exercise Branch, said the planned eleven day exercise was held from July 19 to 30, and comes after Israeli fighter jet squadrons took part in a huge exercise with squadrons from the Hellenic Air Force in April.
