Elbit Systems Meets Major Milestone in Military Flight Training Program

21 November 2016

We are delighted to have delivered these aircraft only 9 months after contract award, said Martin Fausset CEO of Elbit Systems UK

Elbit Systems announced that its joint venture with KBR - Affinity Flying Training Services has reached a significant project milestone with the delivery of its first training aircraft.

The two Grob G120TP Prefects that will deliver elementary flying training were the first of the fleet of aircraft to fly in to RAF Cranwell last week.

The G120TP, which are side-by-side two seater aircraft, are used to teach basic aviation principles and handling skills as well as provide an introduction to basic navigation, night flying and instrument-only flying. The G120TP will be based out of RAF Cranwell and RAF Barkston Heath.

Affinity Flying Training Services will purchase a total of 38 aircraft to support the three levels of flying training. The remainder of the fleet will be delivered next year.

We are delighted to have delivered these aircraft only 9 months after contract award, said Martin Fausset CEO of Elbit Systems UK. We are proud to be a part of this significant project and look forward to seeing more aircraft coming on stream next year.
