59/1 Puma squadron enters its first year as probationary member of the NATO Tiger Association.

During today's 'Detachment Commanders' (DetCo's) meeting at NATO Tiger Meet 2009 the 59/1 Puma squadron was voted 'Probationary Member' of the Association.  This was done after the current and future Commanding Officer of 59/1 Puma squadron briefed all Detco's present about the history and current operational status of the squadron. The squadron operates the JAS-39 C/D model, of which 14 aircraft are leased from Sweden by the Hungarian Air Force for a 10 year period.
