Polish pilots visit Moody

July 28, 2004

Lowndes County - A South Georgia military base is setting the standard for other bases in the world.

Five pilots from the Polish Air Force are visiting Moody Air Force Base this week. They'll start flying F-16 jets soon, and are looking at the way Moody trains their pilots, and the air crafts they train on.

"I think there is a lot of expert people here, very skilled people, and you have an excellent facility that allows you to teach the pilots and make them comfortable," said Col. Ryszard Grelinski.

Moody trains 90 percent of all fighter pilots in the U.S. Air Force.
