RECORD-BREAKING LARGE FORCE EXERCISE SUPPORT

Draken International Completes Record-Breaking Large Force Exercise in Support of the Japanese Defense Force at White Sands Missile Range

In a first for the rapidly emerging commercial air services industry, Draken International executed a large force training exercise in support of the Japanese Defense Force at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. Draken vastly exceeded all expectations with the successful deployment of 18 tactical fighter aircraft to Holloman AFB from September 9-17th. Throughout the operation, Draken flawlessly generated 170 missions to include a 16 turn 16 daily flight schedule. The aircraft included Draken’s radar-equipped Douglas A-4 Skyhawks and the debut of brand new Aero Vodochody L-159E Advanced Light Combat Aircraft (ALCA). This increase in flying volume is an industry first and is a true testament to Draken’s commitment to meeting the rapidly growing demand for credible, capable and cost-effective commercial air services.
