Venezuelan cadets visit cuban military school
The Venezuelan delegation was met at the Institute by its director Brigadier General Tomas Valdes Hernandez. Also present for the visit was Brigadier General Ramon Martinez Echevarria.
After touring the school, Araujo said he was pleasantly impressed. He highlighted the excellent teaching methods and modern training used by the center, which, for more than four decades has graduated officers of the anti-aircraft defense and the air force.
Araujo said that with the visit he foresees future exchanges. "We are looking for our own Bolivarian military thought," based on the legacy of the Latin American independence heroes.
The Venezuelan military delegation "made up of 93 cadets (including 19 women) and the second of its type visiting the island" received thorough information on the daily life at this military teaching institute, the only one of its kind in Cuba.
The group visited one of the computer labs for Air Force pilots and navigators, including the flight plan simulator made by Cuban military specialists where cadets acquire skills they will later use under real conditions.
Cadet Freddy Alberto Cabana Tavera spoke on the history, organization and mission of the Venezuelan Air Force Academy located in Boca del Rio, Maracay in the state of Aragua.
During their stay in Cuba, which concludes on Sunday, the Venezuelan officers and cadets will visit military units, Revolutionary Armed Forces teaching facilities and places of historic and cultural interest.
