Multinational Aircraft Recovery Training 2019 in the starting blocks

The next Multinational Aircraft Recovery Training (MART) will take place from 24 to 28 June 2019. This 7th  edition will be organized again by EATC and hosted for the second time by the United Kingdom. The venue is the Royal Air Force Station St Mawgan.

Six EATC member nations and four partners* announced their intention to attend this 2019 MART edition. 70 trainees and trainers are expected to meet in this unique European forum, exchange expertise and learn about aircraft recovery. 

The 2019 MART edition will be exceptional ! 

The host nation will offer decommissioned aircraft VC-10, property of the Cornwall Aviation heritage centre based at Cornwall Airport Newquay, for training purposes. Thus all participating nations are trained to recover these decommissioned aircraft … in front of the public visiting the Cornwall Aviation heritage centre! This will be a singular display to the public and a challenge for the trainees and their trainers. In addition, the trainees will also increase their confidence in their skills.

MART 2019 will also train with decommissioned aircraft provided by the Royal Air Force. Click here to get the list of the aircraft.
