European Tactical Airlift Programme – Instructor Course (ETAP-I) provides to selected European Air Transport instructor pilots expertise and knowledge about different transport aircraft types and their associated mission capabilities, this with respect to the tactical reference handbook ETTP. Calling them ‘students’ at this project, during our courses the graduates become TacIPs and are always employed on the courses. The instructor course enables them to assist the crews during their flight preparation and to support them during the execution of their missions. At the end of each flight, tactical instructors will evaluate the crew’s performance against syllabus requirements. Once they are back at home they will pass the harmonised training procedures and their knowledge to their national crews, preparing them already for the attendance of one of our courses or any multinational event.
