In recent years, Greek pilots have been achieving the highest distinction between crews from Nato countries in the school TLP (Tactical Leadership Program) of NATO in Spain.

This year, pilot Vasilis Kalogeridis has been named NATO’s best pilot according to a voting amongst his peers.

The Squadron leader achieved this high distinction following his participation in the Tactical Leadership Program (TLP) for 2018 on the Albacete Air Base in Spain.

Specifically, Kalogeridis of the 335 Fighter Squadron of the 116th Wing of Araxos was named “Course Warrior” in the NATO Top Gun and was voted as the top combat trainer military website onalert.gr reports.

Based on the reviews he received he is also the pilot that his fellow NATO fighters would like to have by their side in combat operations or challenging situations.
