The Indian Air Force (IAF) has completed training Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) pilots to operate the Russian-made Sukhoi Su30-MKM Flankers.

The IAF 31-member team, comprising four instructor pilots and one weapon systems officer, has been training RMAF pilots since March 2008.

The IAF’s technical instructors, comprising two engineers, 22 technicians and two administrators, arrived four months later.

Raju said pilots of RMAF’s 11th Squadron are now capable of operating on their own after achieving the required standards, according to newstraitstimes.

Malaysia acquired the Su30 jets in 2007 under a RM3.4bn ($900m) deal with Russia.
