RACVIAC has been organizing courses on the Treaty on Open Skies (OST) since 2002. In 2018 RACVIAC is cooperating closely with the Ministry of Defence of Hungary in order to execute yet another successful Course that will be co-organised, hosted and sponsored by Hungary. The Federal Republic of Germany and the Italian Republic will also support the event with the provision of lecturers.
The purpose of the Course is to train personnel from SEE countries to plan, organize and execute an Aerial Observation Mission based on the provisions of the OST and thus increase the administrative capacity in the field of security cooperation.
This Course is designed as a combination of theoretical (lectures/presentations) and practical activities. The lectures will provide a comprehensive and detailed overview of the relevant parts of the OST. During the practical part of the Course, an Aerial Observation Mission will be planned and carried out over the territory of Hungary using the Open Skies aircraft, the AN-26, provided by Hungary.
