The systems provide support for No. 1 Flight Training School, which trains the next generation of Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Air Combat Officers and Navy Aviation Warfare Officers at RAAF Base East Sale, Victoria.
BAE Systems Australia Aerospace Director Steve Drury said: “The NTP is critical to providing quality air combat and aviation warfare training for ADF aircrew. We’ve been sustaining these systems for 12 years and, in that time, have delivered systems availability at 100 per cent. We look forward to continuing to provide that high standard of training support to sustain ADF capability.”
Through life support is provided by BAE Systems’ maintenance team onsite at RAAF Base East Sale and is supported by its engineering team at Edinburgh Parks, South Australia.
