On 20 July 2016, 110 cadets were graduated from the Egyptian Air Force Academy after three years of study. Among them, thirty-five were Libyan as Arnaud Delalande, author of the “Aviation History” blog, revealed on War Is Boring.

Egyptian president Abdel Fattah Al Sisi awarded medals to the first graduates from Egypt and the State of Palestine, Kuwait, Libya, Sudan and South Sudan. And on July 29, 2016, the Libyan military attaché in Egypt honored the top Libyan officers graduating from the Egyptian army, navy and air force academies.

Egypt supports Libyan Tobruk government, thus it seems logical that the 35 new pilots have joined the Libyan National Army Air Force.

New photos published on Libyan Army social media now confirm that some of these cadets fly for the LNAAF in Benina airbase.
