    The French Air Force has qualified its first pilots in night-time helicopter air-to-air refuelling (AAR) missions, following a week of trials in partnership with the United States Air Force (USAF).

    The trials in France involved Airbus Helicopters H225M Caracals from the Escadron d'Hélicoptères (EH) 1/67 Pyrénées and two Lockheed Martin MC-130J Hercules tankers from the USAF's 352nd Special Operations Wing.
