The Iceland Air Meet 2014 (IAM2014) brings together participants from NATO member nations Norway, Iceland and the Netherlands, and from partner countries Finland and Sweden, to conduct a wide range of air defence-related flying activities.
It is the first time that Finland and Sweden have deployed to Iceland. It improves deployability and interoperability, provides additional training opportunities and further strengthen Nordic defence cooperation (NORDEFCO), between both NATO members and non-members.
