RAMSTEIN, Germany - The French Naval Air Base at Landivisiau, France will roar with the noise from Tiger jets and helicopters from 11 NATO and two Partner air forces from Jun 5 to 16.
This year, France – specifically the French Navy’s Fotille 11F equipped with Ravale Marine jets – hosts the 53rd edition of the NATO Tiger meet.
The traditional meeting of air force squadrons featuring a tiger in their patch is organised annually by the NATO Tiger Association in liaison with one of its member squadrons. The two-week live-fly exercise offers most sophisticated, challenging scenarios in a multinational, joint training environment.
NATO Tiger meet is one of the most important air meets at the tactical level for NATO and Partner air forces. The varied mix of aircraft and nations allows participants to improve their tactics, techniques and procedures and takes interoperability to the next level.
More information will be available during the exercise here and on the HQ AIRCOM Facebook page.
