Elbit Systems announced that its joint venture with KBR – Affinity Flying Training Services has delivered the first two Grob G120TP training aircraft that will deliver elementary flying training to the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force (RAF).
The G120TP aircraft, which are side-by-side two seater aircraft, are used to teach basic aviation principles and handling skills as well as provide an introduction to basic navigation, night flying and instrument-only flying. The G120TP will be based out of RAF Cranwell and RAF Barkston Heath.
Affinity Flying Training Services will purchase a total of 38 aircraft to support the three levels of flying training. The remainder of the fleet will be delivered next year.
