Pre­pa­ra­tion of Air Task Force IM­PACT Ro­to 4

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NOUVELLES -

Ro­to 4 per­son­nel re­cei­ved ins­truc­tion and men­tor­ship from pre­vious ex­pe­di­tio­na­ry ope­ra­tions experts as well as from va­rious air­craft fleet spe­cia­lists al­rea­dy em­ployed on Op IM­PACT.

For the first time since the be­gin­ning of ro­ta­tio­nal trai­ning, les­sons lear­ned were im­ple­men­ted and Ro­to 4 mem­bers had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to train with their fu­ture com­mand team. The pre­sence of Ro­to 4 Com­man­ding Of­fi­cer and Chief War­rant Of­fi­cer had a positive ef­fect on the trai­ning. The two- week col­lec­tive trai­ning was conduc­ted by the ERC team who en­cou­ra­ged them to de­ve­lop cri­ti­cal thin­king, ini­tia­tive and re­sour­ce­ful­ness spe­ci­fic to the ex­pe­di­tio­na­ry mind­set, and car­ry out ope­ra­tio­nal plan­ning while abi­ding by Op IM­PACT's ope­ra­tio­nal thea­ter spe­ci­fic prac­tices. The trai­ning took place from Oc­to­ber 4th to 30th, 2016 at CFB Greenwood where an en­tire village si­mu­la­ting the camp was built. As a re­min­der, Ca­na­dian Forces air­crafts have ope­ra­ted in Ira­qi skies in sup­port of the fight against Daesh since Oc­to­ber 30th, 2014. Al­though CF- 188 air strikes have cea­sed since February 2016, Ca­na­da is mi­li­ta­ri­ly en­ga­ged in Iraq un­der Ope­ra­tion IM­PACT un­til March 31, 2017, and thus the Royal Ca­na­dian Air Force main­tains its air sup­port to the Coa­li­tion.
