As of June 2019, the Air Force has completed more than 50,000 training flights to date, according to the Air Combat Command.
These flights include airborne refueling, combat airlift and airlift support missions.
The Air Force says it has trained nearly 3,000 pilots and enlisted nearly 2,000 additional aircrew to handle the increased workload.
The training missions were conducted in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
The United States and the European Union both have military forces in their airspace, but the United Kingdom is also a part of NATO.
Training flights are a major component of the Air Warfare Center’s (AWCC) annual Air Warfare Assessment program.
The AWCC conducts annual Air Combat Simulator (ACS) simulations to evaluate training missions.
Training missions in the air are conducted from bases throughout the United State.
Air Force pilots and aircrew take part in the mission to support the NATO Air Force’s ground forces in the Balkans, according the Air Forces Central Command.
Airman 3rd Class Mike Dickson of Fort Worth, Texas, participated in the training mission.
The mission was part of the “Gulf of Tonkin Resolution” exercise in South Vietnam.
The military will continue to conduct training flights in the U.S. and Europe.
However, the military said that the flights have now ended, according in a statement.
“The U.K. is also the home of the European Air Command, and has an airfield in the English Channel,” the Air Corps said.
“Therefore, training flights will continue through the summer and fall as normal.”
The Air Corps is still working on plans for future training flights.
The last training flight took place in October 2017, according Air Force officials.
The next scheduled training flight is set for June 2020, according.
