The European Air-to-Air Refuelling Training 2015 (EART 2015) will be held from 13 April - 24 April 2015. The training takes place over the North Sea as well as over parts of the Netherlands, Denmark and Northern Germany. Tankers are located at Eindhoven Airbase. The training is linked with Frisian Flag 2015 that operates from Leeuwarden Airbase.

 

The General purpose of the training is to create a realistic training environment to exchange information and practice among tanker- and jetcrews as well as to enable certification processes between tanker and receiver aircraft. The EDA initiative is one important measure in an amount of different working strands to overcome the EU shortfall on tanker capabilities. Training concepts are created and conducted by the EATC. Finally the training itself is executed by the host nation, the Netherlands.
