BAE Systems has signed an agreement to maintain and support Hawk training planes in the United Arab Emirates.

BAE will contract with the UAE-based Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center, or AMMROC, to provide repairs and upgrades to Hawk Mk61, Mk102 and Mk63 aircraft at a facility in Abu Dhabi until 2020, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

The facility is on the grounds of Al Ain International Airport in Abu Dhabi. The single-engine, jet-powered advanced technology aircraft is typically used for training, although it also can serve as a light combat aircraft.

The contract with AMMROC -- owned by Emirates Defense Industries Corp., Lockheed Martin Corp. and the Lockheed Martin subsidiary Sikorsky -- will include training and maintenance programs to customers.
