Austrian Air Force Trains with Discovery Air

Austrian Pilots Qualify in Air-to-Air Weapons and Tactics
The Austrian Air Force recently successfully completed its first-ever training serials with Discovery Air Defence Services (DA Defence) over Wittmund, Germany. The training qualified Austrian Eurofighter TYPHOON pilots in air-to-air weapons and tactics.
Seven TYPHOONs from 1st Squadron in Zeltweg trained against two A-4N SKYHAWKs from DA Defence in air-to-air gunnery and TYPHOONs from the Luftwaffe’s 71st ‘Richthofen’ Wing in supersonic intercepts.
DA Defence’s crews and aircraft played a pivotal role in the success of this Austrian Air Force training exercise,” Rolf Brandt, Senior Program Manager for German Operations at DA Defence, explained. “We delivered highly-accurate and cost-effective air targets for Austria’s elite Eurofighter pilots. Discovery Air Defence helped Austria to enhance its operational effectiveness and readiness against threats.”
DA Defence has been providing contracted airborne training services for the German Armed Forces since 2015. Flying embedded with the German Air Force (Luftwaffe), DA Defence delivers critical air combat training and combat support for the German military at home and on deployment.
