RIAT 2014 – an extraordinary airshow

By tigerstaffel

The Austrian Tigersquadron was invited to the RIAT in Fairford. We were very excited because it is one of the biggest airshows in Europe, as we could experience during our last visit in 2011. We knew we had a tough task to manage as we had been able to win the Crew Challange three years beforehand. And we wanted to win this competition again…

Nato Tiger Meet 2014

By tigerstaffel

Since the 1960s flying squadrons from the NATO meet at a special exercise, in order  to exchange their experience and demonstrate thoir communion. In 1961 it was a comfortable weekend but it has been grown to one of the biggest flying exercises in Europe.

Since the beginning the tiger-squadrons have met almost every year on different places in Europe for training the interoperability and common tactics. In times of data-link and technically highly developed aircraft these are important advantages.
