The Slovak government is preparing a major infrastructure investment programme for its air force. Following the decision to procure F-16 multirole fighters, UH-60M Black Hawk utility helicopters, and C-27J Spartan transport aircraft, Bratislava will renovate Sliač Air Base, close to the city of Zvolen.


The modernisation, worth a total of EUR55.4 million (USD61 million), consists of three phases. The first and most expensive is the construction of new runways and modernisation and extension of existing ones. The second step is modernisation of the base, including the installation of new aircraft washing systems, for example. The hangars will be modified during the third phase.
