Military Equipment Support
In Oman, Babcock’s approach to strategic partnership is demonstrated by its relationship with the Royal Air Force of Oman, where Airwork Technical Services, our local Omani company, makes skilled manpower available to support the RAFO, in maintaining its aircraft fleet to the highest levels of operational availability. Airwork Technical Services is proud to have provided this service to our RAFO partner for over 50 years.
In Kuwait, as the UK’s lead contractor in support of Tucano, Babcock provides day-day logistics support to the Kuwait Air Force, reducing the through life support costs of the Kuwait Air Force’s training fleet.
Babcock’s commitment to Oman has been further demonstrated by its acquisition of the National Training Institute (NTI). Babcock is already fully committed to the Omanisation programme and to developing the skills of young Omanis, across a wide range of industrial sectors. NTI enables Babcock to support both the public and private sectors in increasing their effectiveness and sustainability through the training and up-skilling of their people.
