MG Candotti became the new ITA COA Commander on 28th September 2016 and hence, MG Fantuzzi handed over the Directorship of the EPRC to him at that time.
MG Fantuzzi really enjoyed the period as EPRC Director both personally and professionally; he truly appreciated the continuous support provided by the EPRC Nations and the productive relationship built up to better support the EPRC establishment. He thanked everybody for the support and he wished the EPRC personnel all the best.
As his first official event, MG Candotti had the great pleasure to welcome EPRC SG Members and other national and international representatives at the 2016 “Air Centric Personnel Recovery Operatives Course” Distinguished Visitors Day (DVD) in Lechfeld Air Force Base. He mentioned the EPRC provides a visible instrument of European cooperation in creating a truly effective PR capability.
