Omani training too lucrative for Croatian pilots

Just last week, Airheadsfly.com reported about Omani pilots getting successfully trained by the Croatian Air Force on Pilatus PC-9s. But now, the training is proving perhaps a bit too successful – for the Croatian instructor pilots, that is. Six of them have resigned to start working for the Royal Air Force of Oman, the Croatian Ministry of Defense has confirmed.

The instructor pilots are also part of six PC-9 strong Croatian Air Force demonstration team Wings of Storm, regularly seen across Europe. Croatian media described the resignation of the pilots as ‘a serious blow’ to the nation’s defense.

And somehow, at Airheadsfly.com we think we won’t see Omani students in Croatia anymore anytime soon.
