eradication of narcotics crops.

B. TRAINING Formal pilot training on the T-65 and OV-10 spray aircraft is conducted

training conducted in certain host countries. An L-19 aircraft (Government furnished) will be

shall, to the extent approved by the Contracting Officer's Representative (COR), participate in
providing formal training to implement Narcotics Affairs Section (NAS) plans to develop host

the Contractor shall provide on-the-job training of host country pilots, NVG observers, and
mechanics in the operation of Aviation Life Support Equipment (ALSE) and NVG equipment

aircraft and equipment to evacuate personnel injured by accidents or hostile action.
