    First solo flight promotion ceremony was held a few days ago at Zemunik Air Force Base for 9 student pilots who flew their first solos. Four flew in PC-9Ms as aircraft and future fast jet pilots and 5 students flew in Bell 206 helo, one of them being a pilot of the Bosnian Armed Forces. This generation of pilots had a very memorable ceremony, in part because Blanka Vlašić, Croatia's high jump record holder, World Champion twice, Olympic silver medalist and second best all-time jumper, participated as the generation's godmother.

    She was flown to the ceremony in a Zlin 242L, expressing her happiness to have been chosen for such an honor by the Air Force. Vlašić also met Krila Oluje lead, Major Damir Barišić, who named the most demanding element of the display team, the bell in formation, after Blanka. Krila Oluje are the only display team in the world to preforme this maneouver in formation.

    Anyway, congratulations to our pilots and a great job to Blanka for supporting our Airmen!

    Hello guys, I have a question that might be hard to answer:

    Some years ago I obtained a gore-tex jacket, in Dutch DPM colours. Recently I learned that this jacket was part of a serie of 25 jackets & pants for the Croatian army in 1994. It was modelled after the belgium wet-weather garment but as I said in Dutch DPM colours. I'm now looking for pictures of Croatian soldiers wearing this jacket. I have some sample pictures here:



    Any help would be really appreciated!

    A lot of camo patterns were being used in the early '90s, but by 1994 US woodland was the standard pattern. I can only guess that the Dutch DPMs were ordered for trial purpouses.

    Yes, the factory who made them also stated that they were made for trial purposes. Now if I only could get some photographic evidence of these trials..

    Austrian Air Force trains in Zemunik.

    On November 22nd, 22 Austrian Air Force personnel along with 6 PC-7s arrived to Zemunik Air Force Base. Upon entering Croatian airspace, they were intercepted by Croatian Air Force PC-9Ms, which were vectored to "targets" by Air Surveillance and Intercept Direction Battalion (ZMIN) using FPS-117 equipped NEBO, the Air Force's airspace control system. Our pilots then escorted Austrian guests to Zemunik.

    This is the first joint flight training undertaken with Austrian Air Force, and Austrian pilots were impressed by their escorts and expressed their satisfaction at being given a chance to fly with Croatian pilots.

    The Navy has trained 11 participants, completing the course for filling gas mixtures for diving, that can perform the demanding tasks of diving in deep waters. Ten participants were trained to operate the portable recompression chamber to assist divers. Civil-military cooperation once again proved to be impeccable, and the Croatian Navy, with the help of the Croatian Olympic Academy reached the knowledge, skills and abilities of diving troops of NATO countries.
