European Tactical Airlift Programme – Symposium (ETAP-S) A symposium has been the first common project within the EATP-programme and is running since 2010. It is still a core activity within the EATF aiming to improve fleet capacity across Europe and to improve interoperability of airlift related issues at the operator level. ETAP-S solely concentrates on tactical aspects of the European air transport domain and it aims for the operator level. This closes the circle of teaching, learning and debating. Tangible initiatives will be to the benefit for consideration by the EATF community.
