Planning application in for new Draken hangar at Teesside with space to house eight L159's or two Falcons. With upto 48 extra aircraft movements a week expected as a result.

Presume the Hawks will get the same treatment as the Tucanos.

Why does the press release have photos of Texans?

The RAF website also has the Augusta A109SP listed as carrying out a similar role to the Voyager, makes you wonder if anyone has any idea what they are doing in the information department.

Can understand it happening once (mistakes happen), but for a Texan image to appear twice suggests whoever put the release together really does think it's a Hawk!

And, apparently, MFTS only trains FJ pilots ...

UK MFTS provides the aircraft, synthetics and training devices to train the next generation of front-line aircrew of all three Services. Upon graduation, these pilots will go on to fly F-35B Lightning and Typhoon fighter jets.

If planning permission is only just now being sought, how long before the site becomes active? It all seems a bit last-minute.com to this old pensioner......

Draken already have a hangar on site, so this is additional space. And doubt whether getting planning permission approved will be an issue.

The contract as I understand it includes live weapons expenditure, practice bombs, air to air gunnery etc.
Is there a facility for this at Teesside?, what with the south side being redeveloped, there is nowhere that I can see to put an ESA, weapon prep, ready use, ADSA etc. Even the Fire Taining Facility is being evicted. Will this be carried out elsewhere, ie TDY/APC at an RAF base etc?

L159's huh, nice aircraft, I have worked on the L39 and thought it had some clever design in it, such as a master switch that disabled the bang seats in the nosebay as a secondary backup from the normal seat systems. and the rear seater had the facility to throw various instruments in the front cockpit readings out, such as navigation.

Sadly some of the press have latched on to the Company name, the mentioned word "aircraft" and have come up with.....



A Draken plane. The firm wants to expand its operations at Teesside International Airport

Could almost be a Gazette April fools but by the standard of normal reporting I fear not. Would be nice to have 8 Saab Drakens based at Teesside.
