Flight education has been suspended for far more than three hundred Saudi Arabian learners at 3 bases in Florida in the wake of the deadly shooting by a Saudi air force officer on Friday, the US navy said Tuesday.
The navy Commander Clay Doss said classroom education is heading to start out yet again this 7 days, and flight education for other learners will resume. But the navy on Monday evening requested that Saudi learners at 3 bases in northern Florida be limited from traveling for an undetermined period of time.
The flight restriction affects 140 learners at Pensacola Naval Air Station, where the shooting transpired, and 35 at close by Whiting Subject. Yet another 128 learners at Naval Air Station Mayport, on the Atlantic seaboard, are also limited.
Doss said the stand-down is an effort to guarantee the security of the learners, as they get better from the trauma of the shooting, which killed 3 US military customers and wounded 8 other people today. Police shot and killed the Saudi shooter.
