Private firm to train Slovak pilots

THE SLOVAK military plans to go to a private company in 2005 to train helicopter pilots and flying instructors, according to the SITA news agency.

The Ministry of Defence tender states that the contractor should provide 50 flight hours of training for each of 14 pilots and 30 flight hours of training for each of two flying instructors. In the following years the ministry counts on training a maximum of 10 pilots and instructors. Firms have time until March 24 to submit their bids.
