As of today, as NBN reports with reference to the statement of the First Deputy Minister Defense of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Alexander Pavlyuk, Ukrainian military personnel continue training on American A-16 fighters. At the end of December, the first group of pilots completed basic training as part of the work of the international coalition of air forces.

According to him, other groups of pilots are currently continuing their training in the United Kingdom as part of language and basic flight training .

Verbatim from the statement of the Ministry of Defense:

This kind of training, in particular language, has continued since August 2023 for experienced pilots . After this, the pilots went to Denmark to train directly to fly F-16 combat aircraft.

In addition, training of flight personnel, engineers and aircraft technicians continues.

At the same time The Air Force expects the advance group in Denmark to be ready around spring.
