I think the real question is that of who has capacity from within existing fleets that isn’t already contractually committed? That is of course unless someone hasn’t acquired a fleet of aircraft...

Interim Red Air Aggressor Training

So it looks like the PQQ for this interim capability was published today. Very little detail contained within regards to what is required beyond stating that the platform must have an air-to-air...

During my time he was a Flt Cdr on 41(F) Sqn, 2001-2003. No idea about his Viper tour, perhaps Shaw on the CJ? He remains one of the few who has stayed true to himself, Boyd would be proud. He...

At least ARES know what they’re doing. M2K-5 in addition to the other M2Ks is the answer if you’re can’t get Gripen.

It has been tried, discussions at AFA in 2019 with Saab resulted in a price iro $20K per flight hour. Now that the Flygvapnet are withdrawing two thirds of the aircraft another chat might be in order.

There are plenty of C/D models about to be retired over the next 2-3 years, it's a great little aircraft.

Especially as we know that all AESA systems are not the same and those with SW&P and cooling constraints offer little real world benefit.

Having spoken to the folks at Raptor Aviation yesterday, it appears Air USA found a buyer for their Hawk mk67s. Unsurprisingly they wouldn't disclose who the buyer may be.

That is what I am lead to believe. Support costs, particularly pyro and P408 engines are increasing with particularly long lead times too. I hope the UK CAA sees sense and doesn’t allow them to fly...

As mentioned elsewhere, Kirlin at Air USA hasn’t the funds to a) acquire them and b) put a new centre barrel in them. They’re pretty much at the end unless this is done.

I must admit I’m really surprised by the timeline, given current contract executions will any of the likely players be able to bid? Has BAE played a blinder and secured the Omani Hawk mk203s?

Yes they have, but who at that price would purchase them? There's a glut of Hawk 60 series aircraft on the market right now, especially 63a and 65/65a models.
