DCI, the French government-backed training arm (static T24), has been selected to provide training to 20 officers from the Libyan Air Force and Defence Force, the company said at Paris Air Show.

This follows the development of a partnership between the French Air Force, Aix-Marseille University and DCI, which has created a training course to qualify for an aeronautical bachelor's degree for foreign officer trainees trained in France at the country's Air Force School.

"Academic training plays an essential part in structuring elite military personnel. DCI has made it one of the central poles of its activities and we are proud to welcome the first Libyan trainees for their training within the French Air Force, " said General Jean-Marc Denuel, executive vice-president of DCI-AIRCO.
