Training of Ukrainian pilots on F-16 may take place in Romania

Jun 21, 2023

The countries that are members of the so-called Fighter Coalition are considering Romania as a possible place to train Ukrainian pilots to fly F-16 fighter jets.

Two American sources told Politico about this.


According to the sources, the "coalition of fighters" is working on an agreement to conduct air exercises at one of the training grounds in Romania. The training is likely to be conducted by Lockheed Martin, which produces the F-16.

European officials have neither publicly confirmed nor denied that the proposal to train Ukrainian pilots in Romania is indeed being discussed.
