Creation of the Rafale training squadron

Created last June, the ETR 0.092 Aquitaine squadron has been inaugurated this october, 6th by Herve Morin the french defense Minister.

Composed of 4 Rafale (3 B and 1 M), it will qualify 12 pilots and navigators per year for the french air Force and Navy.
This common training for the air Force and the navy is intended to make savings but also to allow the sharing of specific knowledge between the two forces.

Based at the BA113 of Saint Dizier, the squadron will welcome junior pilots as well as experience one on other fighter types, switching to the Rafale. After the 9 monts of formation, the trainees will rejoin their definitive squadron to get a specific training. (navy or nuclear specialisation for example).
