    it's common for this to happen in ME only the Americans barred their articles hoping to sell f16s to India (block 52+).

    So that means IAF and PAF pilots trained together as the first cadre of IAF pilots were there at the Esquadron that trains all air force, navy and exchange Rafale pilots.

    I still think it is nonsense as the Qatar AF does not allow our fighter jocks on Mirage 2000s, hence the Rafale is out of the question. No PAF pilot has started nor completed a conversion course on the Rafale.

    You set the bar high but above all else, you drag the average keyboard warrior at 0 to at least the next level of exo geometric thinking, so to speak lol, helps the quality and standards immensely.

    No PAF pilots were involved on the Saudi Typhoons, neither Eagles neither Tornados....

    Closest so far now are F-16s recently at Bahrain.

    Sorry but the title is misleading as no PAF pilots have trained on Rafales for the Qatar AF.

    It is the PAF Academy. One of the finest institutions (FIS included) within Pakistan.

    PAF has no exchange combat pilots with Qatar AF. One senior retired PAF pilot is currently working there in the training wing, the rest have been sent on one-way deputation assignments as instructors on the primary and basic flying training roles.

    No PAF fighter jocks have been on the Rafale in France. Now ground crew is another story.....

    Negative on the Typhoons training.

    I agree. Very capable jet. Excellent weapons package combined with a reliable engine and aircraft performance. Avionics are superb as well.

    Knew one pilot there for the M2ks.. but was likely on the F-1 prior to it so it seemed they might have continued the program.
    But, exchange pilot seemed odd: usually isn’t it retirees ending up taking the expat job?

    According to this November 2016 report in Arabic, Qatar had sent two Pakistan Air Force pilots to train on Rafale. India signed the Rafale deal with France in September 2016.

    كشفت تقارير إعلامية، عن إرسال حكومة قطر طيارين باكستانيين للتدريب على طائرات رافال الفرنسية، كان قد تم التعاقد مع باريس على شرائها مؤخراً.

    وقالت التقارير، إن الحكومة القطرية كانت قد تعاقدت مع فرنسا على شراء 24 طائرة مقاتلة من طراز رافال، بقيمة 6.3 مليار يورو، فى مايو الماضى، وطالبت بعد ذلك برفع الصفقة إلى 36 طائرة، بقيمة 9.45 مليار يورو.

    وكشفت التقارير، أن الحكومة القطرية لم ترسل طيارين قطريين للتدريب على طائرات الرافال، وإنما أوفدت طيارين باكستانيين إلى العاصمة الفرنسية باريس.
