Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has selected BAE Systems to deliver operational maintenance for Hawk 127 Lead-In Fighter fleet.
The company announced Friday that from 1 July 2016, 116 new employees will deliver all maintenance support on the flight line to the Hawk fleet at RAAF Bases Williamtown and Pearce, directly supporting the training of Australia’s next generation of combat aircrew
This support includes aircraft launch and recovery; on-site management support; and deployment operations.
Under the change to the existing Hawk Lead-In Fighter In Service Support Phase 3 contract, BAE Systems will now provide the total Hawk sustainment solution, managing both deeper and operational maintenance.
The contract reinforced the enduring partnership between the Company and the Department of Defence in ensuring the Hawk remains an effective training platform.
BAE Systems Australia Director Aerospace Steve Drury said, “By building on the unified approach we have with the Department of Defence to deliver Hawk deeper maintenance, our operational maintenance solution enables a more holistic approach to Hawk support that maximises aircraft serviceability for less cost.”
Mr Drury added, “This outcome is a testament to our people and performance over more than a decade with 78 Wing, 76 and 79 Squadrons and the Tactical Fighter Systems Program Office. We are proud to be expanding our support of this important RAAF capability.”
The new operational maintenance arrangement will be phased-in from October this year.
