Jun 27, 2023

Western allies are still developing a program to train Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighters.

This was reported to Reuters by the Danish Ministry of Defense.

It is noted that the duration of such a course may depend on the prior training of pilots and their language skills.

"Dialogue and planning is still ongoing, so there is no final plan yet," the Danish Defense Ministry said in a statement.


The ministry expects to be able to train up to six Ukrainian pilots at a time, as well as up to 40 soldiers for support and maintenance.

The ministry could not say how long it would take to complete the training.

"It depends on their combat experience and language skills," the ministry added.
