Sweden is contemplating allowing Ukrainian pilots to test-fly Gripen fighter aircraft

Sweden is considering letting Ukrainian pilots try out the new Gripen fighter jet in order to support Ukraine’s efforts to modernize its air force. Swedish Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist told a press conference that such a deployment could be a way to support Ukraine’s efforts to enhance its military capabilities. Hultqvist said the deployment of the fighter jets to Ukraine on a trial basis could help with supplies and training if requested. The Swedish government is yet to make a formal decision on the matter.
