French graduate six RPA students from Holloman

The newly- graduated French air force pilots and sensor operators stand with Colonel Andrew Croft, 49th Wing commander and Lt. Gen. Antoine Creux, French air force deputy chief of staff, in front of an MQ-9 Reaper at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M., Nov. 26. The French air force worked in collaboration with Holloman AFB to graduate six student pilots and sensor operators from the 16th Training Squadron. The students became the first-ever French air force members to learn the MQ-9 Reaper system, and their landmark graduation will mark the beginning of future coalition efforts between France and the U.S. to better utilize Remotely Piloted Aircraft across the world. Creux visited Holloman AFB both to take part in the graduation ceremony, and to tour Holloman AFB’s MQ-9 training facilities. (U.S. Air Force phot by Airman 1st Class Daniel E. Liddicoet/Released)
