    <P><A href="http://www.iai.co.il/Templates/Homepage/Homepage.aspx?lang=EN" target=_blank>Israel&nbsp;Aerospace Industries</A> has offered to help the country's air force keep its CM-170 Zukit trainers in service until the air force has a chance to evaluate the military version of the ATG Javelin very light jet.</P> <P>IAI is partnered with the US manufacturer on a bid to replace Israel's ageing basic trainers, and says it is prepared to pay for the upkeep of the CM-170s until the Javelin capabilities are proven. Although the Israeli ministry of defence has kept open a request for proposals, IAI says that negotiations are taking place with the air force.</P> <P>The Israeli company is designing two military versions of the Javelin: the Mk20 version will be identical in size to the VLJ version, but with ejection seats and military avionics for basic flight training.

Certification of the aircraft - which is initially on offer to the general aviation sector in the baseline Mk 10 configuration as a very light jet - is scheduled for late 2008. </P> <P>ATG and IAI will then begin the evaluation of a Mk 20 version aimed at the military market. This process will have co-operation from the Israeli air force, which has delayed the evaluation process for a new basic trainer to allow the Javelin team time to participate. </P> <P>IAI will manufacture the Mk 20 version of the aircraft in Israel. It will be identical in size to the Mk 10 but with ejection seats and military avionics.

  • Military trainers: Games without frontiers as nations come together

    News | 20 Mar 2007 00:00 | Craig Hoyle

    <P>Not all nations have the financial ability to acquire and operate their own fleets of primary, basic, advanced and lead-in fighter trainers, plus training helicopters and multi-engined platforms. This reality has opened the door to innovative contracting arrangements with industry or participation in multinational training systems now available in abundance in the Western world. </P> <P>One of the largest such latter systems now in existence is the Euro-NATO Joint Jet Pilot Training (ENJJPT) scheme, which has been delivering services at Sheppard AFB in Texas since the signature of a memorandum of understanding in 1981. Initially envisaged as a 10-year initiative to lead to the creation of a similar set-up in mainland Europe, ENJJPT is alive and well and currently contracted to operate until at least September 2016. </P> <P> <TABLE style="WIDTH: 445px" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 align=center border=0> <TBODY> <TR> <TH> <H6 align=right><IMG style="WIDTH: 445px; HEIGHT: 210px"http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Military-trainers-Games-without-frontiers-as-nations-come-together-212721/
