Six Ukrainian war pilots finish, ten more continue F-16 basic training in UK

The initial group of six experienced Ukrainian combat fighter pilots, trained by the British Royal Air Force (RAF), is now advancing to F-16 fighter jet training in Denmark after completing their UK-based basic program, according to the British Government.

Ten more Ukrainian trainee pilots, who underwent language training, are currently in the UK, pursuing practical basic flight training, along with essential skills like aviation medicine and centrifuge training.

According to the report, the UK has been providing basic training to Ukraine’s combat air pilots as a contribution to the international Air Force Capability Coalition for Ukraine.

In August, the RAF initiated flight and English language training as a vital component of the UK’s involvement in the international Air Force Capability Coalition for Ukraine, a collaborative effort to enhance Ukraine’s air capabilities led by allies and partners.
