Skaraborg Wing, F 7, is responsible for the production of three Gripen divisions and for the training of all the Air Force’s Gripen pilots. The Wing technical office exercises overall management of the operation, maintenance, modification and technical support and development work for all aircraft types in service with the Swedish Armed Forces.
The Wing is also the home base for all of the Air Force’s eight TP 84 Hercules transport aircraft. The transport aircraft unit has employed its Hercules transport aircraft in missions covering every continent, often in connection with international disasters and other humanitarian aid missions. The first of these aircraft was delivered in 1965 which makes F 7 the longest established Hercules operator in Europe.
