Aviation Training, Afghanistan
PROBLEM: Afghan Security Forces require rotary wing tactical mobility and manned ISR to support Counterterrorism and Counternarcotics (CN/CT) missions.
SOLUTION: MAG deployed teams of instructor pilots, crews, mechanics, and logisticians to train, advise, and support the Afghan Special Mission Wing (SMW) within a 30 day transition period.
RESULTS: MAG has provided aircrew progression and Mission Qualification Training for the SMW, creating a fully qualified Day/Night Air Assault force capable of providing fully proficient mission support and planning to Afghan military special mission units. MAG has developed a tailored aircrew training program with both Afghan SMW and US military advisor buy in that is tailored specifically to the SMW’s mission and can be sustained for the long term. Additionally, MAG has provided surge maintenance capacity and training for the SMW and flight operations support (Armorers, ALSE Technicians, Flight Operations Personnel, Simulator Operators) to support both the operational and training mission for the SMW in theatre. MAG was able to setup the SMW Aircrew training program and maintenance capability in Kandahar in a 30 day period, 4 months ahead of scheduled implementation.
