Saudi flight training resumes

PENSACOLA, Fla. - Saudi Arabian international military students resumed flight training this week on U.S. bases including Naval Air Station Pensacola, as new policies are being put in place regulating firearm ownership by all foreign military trainees on U.S. soil. In a press release issued Wednesday, the Navy said Saudi Arabian students had resumed training on Tuesday. The students, stationed at NAS Pensacola, NAS Whiting Field and NAS Mayport in Florida, were ordered to stand down just days after the Dec. 6 terrorist attack on NAS Pensacola that left three sailors dead and eight wounded. The gunman was also killed. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 02/27/20) Previous
