Welcome to the Institute for Defense and Government Advancement’s 5th Annual Military Flight Training conference! The conference is driven by emerging ideas and initiatives from leading stakeholders across the flight training community.
The level of sophistication for current and emerging aircrafts whether they are multi-engine, fixed wing, or rotary are rapidly advancing, requiring an increased focus on flight training initiatives in order to utilize the full potential of these next generation aircrafts.
By guiding flight training initiatives to leverage new technology and innovative education strategies, Commands can effectively reduce the gaps in skills and capabilities from training aircraft to operational aircraft in the most efficient and cost effective way possible.
With an in-depth focus on innovation, critical discussions will take place on balancing live and synthetic training, benefits to VR technology, integration of the T-X aircraft, operational readiness initiatives, 5th Generation aircraft, to include an in-depth view on the emerging training and procurement priorities of our international partners, and much more.
Join IDGA’s Military Flight Training conference for the unique opportunity to collaborate and network with key leaders, international partners, solutions providers, and subject matter experts a from across the full range of United States and International flight training priorities and future roadmaps.
An analysis of the top three contenders for the T-X, the military's latest flight trainer fleet. The 4th Annual Military Flight Training Summit provides a breakdown of these jets just a few weeks before the final announcement of the T-X contract, to be awarded by the AETC.
As the US Military faces one of the most serious pilot shortages of all time, the issue of retention is at the forefront. Pilots are leaving the force in droves, but the question is why? Part 1 of this two part series breaks down the reasons behind low retention numbers. This topic will be discussed in depth at the 4th Annual Military Flight Training Summit.
Retention in the military is always a challenge, but now more than ever. The current numbers leave us at about a 2,000 person shortage, causing many to wonder how the military will remedy this. From new pilot training programs to expanded VRAAD to innovative strategies, there are a multitude of opportunities the Force is exploring to close the gap.
