Pilots Will Fly American-Made Helos By End Of Year
Like a Phoenix from the ashes of ruins, the new Iraqi Air Force
is starting to reach for the sky.
Over the weekend Middle East News Line reports 19 Iraqi flight
officers got their rotor wings. They'll fly American-made
helicopters beginning at the end of this year. They're currently
undergoing training in Jordan.
But learning to fly US helicopters isn't their only training.
Maj. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, deputy director of coalition operations in
Iraq, says they're also getting lessons in democratic leadership.
He hopes these 19 officers will form the core of a new Iraqi Air
Force built on traditions and beliefs much different than those who
flew for Saddam Hussein.
