Joint Training Mission to Highlight U.S. & Estonian Partnership
Monday, May 4, 2020
The U.S. and Estonian air forces will conduct a training mission on May 5, 2020, to enhance interoperability and strengthen our enduring relationship. The U.S. routinely and visibly demonstrates commitment to our Allies and partners through the global employment of our military forces. Training together with NATO Allies enhances not only the readiness of U.S. forces, but the forces of our Allies, making us stronger together.
Residents in the Tallinn area may see an increase in military flying activity during this integrated training. All training occurs at designated sites and has been coordinated with the Government of Estonia.
The U.S. Air Force values opportunities such as these to build readiness capacity and capability alongside the Estonian air force. Regardless of any global challenge the U.S. remains committed to our allies and partners and stands ready alongside them. The U.S. has provided more than $100 million in overall security assistance to Estonia over the last several years, and conducts nearly 150 military-to-military engagements per year with over 60 of those taking place with U.S. personnel in Estonia.
