SMi Reports: SkyTech confirmed as the latest sponsors for the 7th annual Military Flight Training conference, taking place 10-11 October 2018 in London, UK

SMi are proud to announce SkyTech as the newest sponsors of the 7th annual Military Flight Training conference, taking place on the 10th and 11th October 2018, in London, UK.


SkyTech, powered by Hi Fly, offer solutions to address shortfalls in military aviation. They fund and provide operations and maintenance support to a wide range of services by offering a variety of solutions for short, medium or long-term contracts.


In recent news, SkyTech and Embraer signed a letter of intent at the Singapore Airshow in February for the potential provision of six KC-390 transports, claiming they’ve been earmarked for various defence projects. In addition, the two companies have arranged a potential strategic collaboration to explore training and services opportunities, with Embraer looking to SkyTech as a strategic partner to add value to customer interest that it already has for the aircraft.


Following on from this, SkyTech recently signed up to sponsor Military Flight Training, where their Senior Vice President Mr Mal Sandford, will be presenting "A New Paradigm in Training", where he will discuss:


  • Advancing the availability of training needs in 2019 and beyond
  • Buy what you need, as you need it
