The Hellenic Air Force and the IAF trained together in Greece in 2010. The two air forces practiced rescue missions, training with the Hellenic Air Force both in the role of ally and enemy. The exercise also gave the IAF the chance to practice rescue missinos while dealing with mountainous terrain and rapidly-changing weather.These types of exercises central to military cooperation between Israel and Greece.

3. IAF combat helicopters take flight in Israel’s open skies.

The soldiers practiced storming an area, and operating under bio-chemical attack. The drill also included cooperation with the Israel Air Force, as the soldiers had to protect a helicopter that was to land in an open field.
