The European Defence Agency (EDA) Helicopter Training Programme (HTP) will organise military rotary wing exercises over a ten year period, following the signing of a programme arrangement on 19 November.

The HTP agreement was signed at the latest meeting of the (EDA) steering board, with the aim of the pooling and sharing programme to address the shortfall in deployable helicopters within Europe by improving training effectiveness.
