This CSAR course 2008 has been organised at the Tactical Leadership Programme (TLP) facilities at Florennes, Belgium. EAG nations have long seen the need for a “Combined Joint Combat Search and Rescue Standardisation Course”. This two week CSAR course is aimed at all helicopter and fixed wing aircrew that want to gain experience in Joint Personnel Recovery missions. It is a two week course that is composed out of four days of theory and six days of live missions, one mission a day. Each mission will be thoroughly briefed, planned and debriefed. In this way, the course will allow all pilots, whatever their individual background and experience to learn and to gain proficiency. At the end of the course all pilots should be able to take up the responsibilities of the Rescue Mission Commander.
The objectives are to enhance knowledge and proficiency required to plan and execute a CSAR mission in a non permissive, international environment, to impart knowledge and proficiency in working with European and NATO coalition partners, to enhance proficiency in flying within a CSARTF as an element of a COMAO, working through operational documents and to enhance knowledge of the organisation and of the operation of a CJRCC.
The CJCSARS course has been executed within the geographical boundary of FLORENNES CTR and the Helicopter Training Area Ardennes (HTAA), which are positioned within the following geographical boundary: River Meuse – borders of Germany, Luxemburg and France. The Low Flying Area Ardennes (LFAA) is located above the HTAA and is used for both the helicopters and the fixed wing aircraft.
