By Jonathan Mallard Air Education and Training Command Public Affairs

U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. James Sears, deputy commander of Air Education and Training Command, converses with French air and space forces counterparts during their visit to learn more about pilot training at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas, Oct. 18, 2022.

The FASF visit to AETC was part one of two visits between the organizations focused on the mutual exchange of best practices, hurdles, quality of life initiatives, and more, under the umbrella of pilot training.

This exchange opportunity was presented when top U.S. and French military leaders met for operator engagement talks in Washington, D.C., in February.
