Babcock renews military flying training contract with RAF

Babcock has signed a four-year agreement (with four further option years) to continue to operate the Light Aircraft Flying Task (LAFT2) for the Ministry of Defence (MOD).

This full-service partnership provides the MOD with a cost-effective way to operate flying training that is backed up by Babcock’s in-depth understanding of the military training ethos.

Operational delivery is supported by engineering expertise and detailed asset management that ensures high levels of aircraft availability to support the delivery of the flying task. By taking a whole force capability approach, Babcock supports the training of front-line aircrew, University Air Squadron cadets and Air Experience Flying for the RAF Air Cadets.
