JAS-39 Gripens from Six Nations Fly Together
Under a blue sky all six Gripen nations meet in the air during the Aerospace Forum event that took place in Linköping, Sweden last week. A historical moment that, once again, marks the success that Gripen has made in the international market.
Gripen is operational in the Swedish, Czech, Hungarian, South African and Royal Thai Air Forces. The UK Empire Test Pilots’ School (ETPS) operates Gripen as its advanced fast jet platform for test pilots worldwide.
In November 2011 the Swiss Federal Council also selected Gripen as the preferred candidate to replace the F-5.
