Training resources

The collection entitled Training Resources stores items representing the entire system of training fighter and civilian pilots, which is a very complex and time-consuming process. Training is carried out in stages, which are defined as initial, basic, advanced, transition (dedicated) and combat training.

The first Serbian pilots were trained in 1912 in Etampes, France at the school of the Farman brothers. 
The training of military pilots continued during the First World War in Thessaloniki, and since 1919 in a school founded in Novi Sad. After World War II, Mostar and Zadar became training centers for military pilots, and Vršac for civilian pilots.

During training, in addition to aircraft, various training equipment is used. 
Apart from the demonstration equipment, the most used are flight and learning simulators. The museum has professional simulators of passenger aircraft DC-9, DC-10 and Yak-40.

Of the military aircraft, the Aeronautical Museum keeps a simulator of the Soko Jastreb J-21, as well as trainers for the S-49, T-33, Saber and numerous others. On display at the Aeronautical Museum is the Link Trainer, an American-made flight simulator that was in use from the 1930s to the 1950s.
