New Lavi trainer better prepares IAF cadets for Hezbollah, Iran

Dozens of Israel Air Force cadets will receive their officer’s ranks on Tuesday at Hatzerim Air Force Base, in a ceremony that occurs every year – though this year’s new pilots are different.

These members of the 170th IAF training course are the first to have trained on the M-346 Master training jet, which is dubbed the Lavi (Hebrew for Lion) in the IAF.

Maj. Erez, the deputy commander of the Hatzerim training squadron, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that the new plane undoubtedly enables the cadets to come better prepared for advanced surface-to-air missiles, hostile aircraft, and other threats in the possession of foes like Hezbollah, the Assad regime in Syria, and Iran.
