ILA 2014: SKYHAWKs for German training

Canadian contractor Discovery Air Defence Services has recently won a contract to provide training to the German military using a fleet of Douglas A-4 SKYHAWKs. Under the five-year deal, the subsidiary of Discovery Air will fly seven jets to provide around 1,200 hours of fast jet airborne training services annually, beginning in January 2015. Discovery Air Defence Services acquired 10 A-4s after its take-over of Advanced Training Systems International in December 2013. Operating from bases in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and Italy, the A-4s will likely be used for missions including Joint Tactical Air Controller (JTAC) training, adversary support, target towing, and electronic warfare training.
