European Defence Agency, February 17, 2016 - Exercise Cold Blade 2016 is planned to be held in Ivalo in Northern Finland from 7 till 18 March 2016 under the framework of the EDA Helicopter Exercise Programme (HEP), hosted by the Finnish Defence Forces.

Its location clearly suggests the main focus: environmental training in cold and snowy conditions.

The remote location enables the helicopter crews to test and learn flight procedures in free airspace, uninhabited areas and in a snowy and cold environment. White-out landings and approaches, navigation and NVG flights are some examples of the tactics, techniques and procedures that will be conducted during Cold Blade 2016. In addition to flight training, this versatile exercise gives the helicopter crews an opportunity to train in winter survival in the arctic conditions.

Eight helicopters and approximately 180 persons will take part in Cold Blade 2016. Together with the Host Nation helicopter unit, Germany will deploy their CH-53GA helicopters to the remote area.

The distinguished visitor’s day will be held on 15 March 2016.

Another HEP exercise, Black Blade 2016, is planned in Belgium between 14 November and 2 December 2016, focusing on Special Operations Forces (SOF) missions.
