Will Support NATO Jet Trainers In Collaboration With Bombardier

Underpinning the growing importance of support and services to its business portfolio, BAE Systems has today announced a new $6.16 million contract to continue support of Hawk jet trainers at the NATO Flying Training program based in Canada (NFTC).

The contract with prime contractor Bombardier ensures the timely delivery of both scheduled and unscheduled servicing and technical support services, including responding to queries from the NFTC program.

The continuing collaboration between BAE Systems and Bombardier has seen the introduction of a number of process improvements and through life cost savings, which has resulted from extending the period of time between scheduled servicing.

"BAE Systems welcomes this contract extension," said Martin Rushton, Senior Vice President Training Solutions and Support . "Working closely with Bombardier has led to a range of cost saving solutions being introduced. The Hawk Mk115 fleet has one of the highest aircraft flying hour totals in the Hawk trainer aircraft world and with the fleet exceeded 75,000 flying hours in the last ten years, it is vital we deliver a reliable and cost-effective support solution."

There are 11 NATO Air Forces in the NFTC program either as participants or instructors.
