First major delivery milestone in RW Fleet Review
Marking the first major delivery milestone in QinetiQ’s Test Aircrew Training (TAT) Rotary Wing (RW) Fleet Review investment, we’re delighted to announce that the first of our two new Agusta A109S Grand helicopters has been formally accepted by QinetiQ. This acceptance is the culmination of hard work and consistent collaboration in delivery from all those across the Project Team and the QinetiQ Civil Flying Organisation (QCFO), as well as our partners at Castle Air.
Flagship ‘Papa’ acceptance the latest milestone in phase 1 of the Rotary Wing Fleet Review (RWFR) Project
This latest confirmation follows off the back of the ‘November’ and ‘Oscar’ acquisitions and represents the final milestone in phase one of the Rotary Wing Fleet Review Investment. The move once more reaffirms QinetiQ’s intention to continually improve and modernise Training, Test and Evaluation (TT&E) in ensuring our capabilities meet the demands of frontline training requirements.
