The objective of MATC is to provide a broad spectrum of training for aircrews and maintenance specialists by optimising the use of existing capacities and capabilities offered by the Participants (CZE, HRV, HUN, SVK). In fulfilling this objective, the MATC will not possess any direct training capabilities. These capabilities will be provided by the Participants, while remaining in their control and ownership.
The MATC enables the Participants to harmonise and standardise aviation training and education, enhance their quality level, improve interoperability and capabilities of their respective forces, and take an active role in the development of training standards and concepts and their practical validation. Intensive cooperation within the MATC will strengthen mutual confidence between the Participants, further harmonise their national procedures, and improve interoperability, which in time may facilitate the establishment of multinational task forces or units and their joint deployment to areas of operations led by NATO, the EU, the UN, or other international organization.
The multinational effort within MATC has been initiated on the basis of Mi-type helicopters; however, other aviation platforms and capabilities (other helicopters, fixed-wing, remotely piloted platforms, and Joint Terminal Attack Controllers) may be incorporated as early as technically feasible. The cooperative mechanism of MATC should be maintained even if the Participants change their aviation platforms. It is desirable to increase the number of nations participating in the MATC.
In addition, the MATC may also support the development of other capabilities not falling within its scope and activities, such as direct training within the MATC and/or deployment of expert teams while contributing to stabilisation and reconstruction efforts led by NATO, the EU, the UN, or other international organization.
