RAF Boulmer hosted several officers from the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO), visiting the station to witness first-hand how the School of Aerospace Battle Management (SABM) has developed its procedures and programmes to produce world-class air-defence specialists.
The Omani officers were given practical demonstrations and took part in open discussions to allow them a complete snapshot of the way the SABM operates and how it is able to train highly-capable personnel.
The RAFO plans to adopt similar procedures for its training establishments in Oman.
Wing Commander Zahran of RAFO said: “It is very important that we watch others training and incorporate what we learn into our own system. The visit to Boulmer has been invaluable”.
The RAFO officers were looked after by Squadron Leader Andy Foy. He said: “Throughout the visit, the RAF Oman delegation was extremely receptive to the programme we offered and grateful for their insight into SABM training procedures.”
