Located on the Turkish Air Force's 3rd Main Jet Base Command at Konya, the Anatolian Eagle Training Centre (AETC) organizes and hosts the Anadolu Kartali (Anatolian Eagle) series of live air exercises. The AETC includes a dedicated ramp and a purpose-built facility for (de)briefings and command and control centre for White HQ, which organizes, monitors and runs each mission. Participants fly Combined Air Operations as Blue Force, while Red Force consists of real and simulated threats.
