Lt Bridget Compain part of the Special Duties Squadron team who have been training Afghan pilots sits in the cockpit of the Mi-17 helicopter.The UK Joint Helicopter Command began training a number of Afghan pilots and flight engineers in UK in Feb 2008 under PROJECT CURIUM. Supported throughout by QinetiQ, the project is scheduled to complete in Mar 2010 by which time a total of 27 Afghan aircrew will have been trained on the Mi-17 helicopters based at MOD Boscombe Down by the staff of the Special Duties Squadron (SDS).This is a small-scale project with a high return. Time and effort invested in training the Afghan crews enables an eventual withdrawal of UK forces and the programme has already yielded tangible results. A number of crews have completed their training and returned to Afghanistan where initial reports suggest they are a well-respected, competent and motivated cadre of professionals. The crews trained here in UK are the seed corn of an indigenous Afghan National Security Force helicopter capability.
