Multinational Aircraft Recovery Training 2012
Wednesday 30 May - 16:25h | News & Press updates
From 20 May until 25 May 2012 the French Airbase 123 near Orléans hosted the very first Multinational Aircraft Recovery Training 2012 (MART 2012)
with more than 50 participants from six European nations – Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands and Spain.
Since it is part of the European Air Transport Command’s (EATC) objectives to harmonize and standardize the different national procedures in order to ameliorate their interoperability, a multinational training for the handling of a possible worst case scenario was a logical step to take. This covers as well the possible recovery and salvage of an aircraft. Hence initiated and coordinated by the Functional Division of the EATC, the partner nation France had accepted to take the lead in organizing and hosting this very first exercise of its kind.
ground.The different teams on the site were able to face situations which may occur in real life as well. The training was to focus on the practical side of an aircraft recovery by using available equipment and by improvising if necessary.
The lessons learned drawn from the combination of using the own background knowledge and learning new equipment and procedures from other nations was of high value for the experienced technicians.
