The Croatian Air Force Training Centre at 93. Air Force and Air Defence Base in Zemunik started flight training on the Pilatus PC-9M of the second group of Royal Air Force of Oman pilots on 26 February 2015.

The program has five major modules: fundamental and acrobatic, navigation, instrument, night and group flying, plus a combination of all. Target is to prepare the Oman military pilots to move on to their future operational flying units.
