BAE Systems has awarded Cobham a 30 month contract to provide air support to operational readiness training for the Royal Saudi Air Force. The contract is part of the Saudi British Defence Cooperation Programme and will run from 2014 to 2016.
Cobham’s specialist technology and know-how is used to provide training to service personnel operating platforms, including the Typhoon, Tornado and Type 45 Destroyer. Cobham Aviation Services supports training in the United Kingdom and a number of the Ministry of Defence's overseas detachments in regions such as North America and the Middle East, according to the official statement.
“We are delighted that we have the opportunity to provide the Royal Saudi Air Force with the same high level of operational readiness training that we deliver to the armed forces of the United Kingdom and NATO, and look forward to developing a highly effective partnership,” said Peter Nottage, vice president of Cobham Aviation Services strategic business unit.
“The service depends on extensive technology and know-how that Cobham has developed since the mid-1980s, which we continue to evolve to meet the needs of modern armed forces.”
