First French Air Force personnel to begin A400M training
Activities to train the first French air force personnel to operate Airbus Military's A400M Atlas transport will begin late this month, with the service also confirming that it expects to receive its first of the aircraft during May.
An initial cadre of maintenance personnel will receive training in supporting the type from 28 January at the International Training Centre at Airbus Military's San Pablo site near Seville, the French air force says. Its first pilots to convert to the Atlas will undergo instruction in Toulouse from 4 February, before receiving further training in Spain
