Rolls-Royce Awarded GBP105M to Support UK Hawk Trainer Fleet

Rolls-Royce has agreed a new £105 million contract with the UK Ministry of Defence to provide support for the Adour engine which powers the Hawk jet trainer aircraft, including those flown by the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team - the Red Arrows.

The 11-year contract will enable Rolls-Royce to provide the maintenance, repair and overhaul to the two variants of the Adour engine in service in the UK with the work carried out at Rolls-Royce’s UK Defence Headquarters in Bristol as well as representatives deployed at RAF Valley to provide on sit advice to operations.

"The agreement announced today will allow us to maximise the availability and supportability of the Adour engine for our customer.
We have an established and valuable relationship with the UK Government and armed forces and we are proud to continue to support them into the next decade and beyond." Alex Zino, EVP Business Development and Future Programmes at Rolls-Royce Defence
