      Instructors will teach. Something was not heard about very skilled pilots from the Czech Republic. Have they already been taught in NATO?

      Well, thank you, it is necessary to send "THEM" with their help, the further the better, everyone in the 90s felt for themselves what the help of the United States and its hangers-on was. No wonder there is a saying "Worse than smart enemies, only smart-ass friends" here it works 100%
