FACTS:

Since the initial flying project in 2012 (EATT, ESP), European Air Forces have realized the added value of having tactical training activities in a common, multinational setting within Europe. Previously, the only available option to train air transport crews in the tactical domain was to send them to courses in the US (AATTC).  With the implementation of the ETAC and our projects (ETAP-T, ETAP-C and ETAP-I), EU nations can now benefit from more cost-efficient training opportunities and they can apply for those projects independent of US training availabilities.
