The 4th Air Wing of the Italian Air Force in Grosseto got off to a flying start in January by setting a new record for the aircraft. The wing, flying their fleet of Eurofighter Typhoons, achieved 200 sorties and amassed 260 flying hours in January, 130 of which were accomplished during the last week of the month. These facts are tangible proof that the two Squadrons of the Grosseto' 4th Stormo have successfully brought the operational availability of their Typhoons up to a very high level. This has largely been attributed to the effective integration of the 904th GEA, Gruppo Efficienza Aeromobili, the unit that has the responsibility to keep the Grosseto’s Typhoons operational at the higher level, with the flying Squadrons. Colonel Achille Cazzaniga, 4th Stormo Wing Commander, expressed his satisfaction concerning this month’s achievements. He stressed how impressed he was by both the unconditional availability of the Eurofighter Typhoon and the motivation of the personnel.
