After a rigorous Combat Readiness Training that started on 25 March 2013 and ended on 5 July 2013, eight Gripen pilots are all set to be a part of  units F21 and F17, says the Swedish Air Force blog forsvarsmakten.​ 

“We are pleased with their accomplishments and wish them luck in the future and welcome them back when they are ready to step into the instructor role,” says FVI's Carl Nordberg.

During the training, students completed Phase A of the weapons system training which involved management of both radars and weapons. Thereafter in Phase B, they put into practice their knowledge against airborne targets.​
