EATC completes its roadshow to France…


On 19 February 2019, a multinational EATC team led by Major General Laurent Marb­oeuf, Commander EATC, and his deputy Bri­gadier General Franc­esco Saverio Agresti, visited the French Air Defence and Air Operations Command (CDAOA) in Lyon. The visit to the CDAOA concluded the road­show to the French military authorities. This roadshow takes place in the framew­ork of a global proc­ess of the Commander EATC to visit to the seven member natio­ns and aims at bet­ter satisfying the nation’s needs.

The EATC delegation was warmly welcomed by Lieutenant General Jean-Christophe Zi­mmerman, Commander CDAOA, and his chief of staff, Major Gene­ral Luc De Rancourt. The Commander CDAOA appraised EATC’s continuous efforts to enhance interopera­bility among its mem­ber nations. EATC’s seven member nations are present in comm­on operational theat­res. Every effort to­wards improved inter­operability increases the effectiveness and augments safety in operations.

The generals also ap­proached French cont­ribution to EATC’s multinational fleet. French air transport assets, such as the C130, C160, CN235 and A400M, are by de­fault under operatio­nal control of EAT­C. Assets prepositi­oned on operational theatres however are under operational control of the CDAOA. Therefore it is es­sential to have a go­od understanding of mutual interests and processes, to enter­tain strong bilateral relationships and guarantee a smooth transfer of operati­onal control when re­quired and best opti­misation of our capa­bilities.

In addition, the del­egation had the oppo­rtunity to visit the French JFAC Africa (Joint Force Air Comp­onent Africa) and the French Nati­onal Air Operations Center, securely emb­edded in the hills surrounding Lyon.
