SUBJECT: POST SUPPORTS 1206 PROPOSAL FOR AVIATION PARTNER
DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM IN CROATIA FOR FY10

1. The Ambassador supports ODC Croatia's 1206 proposal,
coauthored with SOCEUR, for FY10 - "Aviation Partner
Development Program" in Croatia. The equipment and
training in the proposal will help address the
significant shortfall of rotary wing support available
to NATO forces for out-of-area operations. Croatia has
already taken the concrete step of sending two of their
new Mi-171sh helicopters and their crews to KFOR in
April 2009. The proposal will further develop a
deployable helicopter capability by improving the
survivability of the helicopter in less permissive
missions and by training the helicopter crews to a higher
standard, to include flying with night-vision devices.
2. Post is not aware of any credible evidence of
gross violations of human rights by the units who are
proposed to receive assistance.
3. The POC for this project is ODC Chief LTC Chuck Davis
