TLP, Tactical Leadership Programme, also known as the Pilot School of NATO, is an international military organisation formed by 10 permanent member countries.
Aviamagazine visited Florennes Air Base on March 14th and 28th 2007. And again nice weather and nice participants during the second TLP session this year.
On September 28th we visited the TLP exercise at Florennes AB. When we arrived the sun was shining. We had a base visit so we could see and photograph all the participants. Today the last mission for this TLP exercise was flown. Besides the participants, some support aircraft were planned.
Rene Wilthof visited the Belgium Airbase Florennes for the third edition of the Tactical Leadership Program (TLP) for this year. Present at this edition: French F1's and Super Etendards, Greek F-4's, Italian and English Tornado's (IDS / GR4 / F3), Spanish F1's and F/A-18's.
On Wednesday June 23th we were invited to visit the TLP at Florennes AB. Participants of this edition included Greek and Italian Vipers, French Super Etendards and Mirage 2000. RAF Jaguars, F3s and an Harrier. Also present Danish F-16 and a Spanish Falcon 20 ECM jammer.
On Thursday 12th of May, Aviamagazine visited the last mission day of the third Tactical Leadership Program (TLP) exercise this year. Participants includes Spanish Harriers, F1's and Hornets. English Tornado Gr4's and F1's and Hawks. Turkish and Portuguese vipers also attended.
Normally lots of F-16's and Tornado's can be seen on a TLP edition, but this edition the majority were F-4 Phantoms; 6 German F-4F ICE and 4 F-4E's from 338 Mira.
This year six TLP courses were scheduled. TLP 2004-05 is the last one at the Belgian airbase Florennes. Because it was the first time that French (Navy) Rafale's participated, this would be a special TLP and a great excuse to visit Florennes AB again. We visited the base during departure day on 5 November 2004.
Aviamagazine visited the 4th edition of the Tactical Leadership Program (TLP) exercise at the Belgian air base Florennes. This edition we walked the flight line and witnessed takeoff in appalling weather. Participants included Greek Mirage 2000s and Spanish Mirage F1 and F-18s.
