We have signed an agreement with AMMROC (Advanced Military Maintenance Repair and Overhaul Center) LLC to provide continued support to the Hawk aircraft fleet in the United Arab Emirates.
This agreement will run to 2020, renewing our existing successful partnership with AMMROC.
Arrangements for supplying spares and repairs along with a bespoke level of access to our engineering expertise on the Hawk Mk61, Mk102 and Mk63 aircraft are included in the agreement.
We offer a flexible portfolio of support services for Hawk customers across the globe which can be tailored to meet each customer’s evolving needs. These services are centred on a Support Service Hub that provides specialist engineering and support services, utilising the latest technology to exploit information and data from the worldwide Hawk fleet.

“It will strengthen and enhance the collaborative work between our two organisations in the long-term maintenance of the aircraft. This agreement enables the United Arab Emirates to continue to benefit from our industry-leading expertise in supporting Hawk, as we continue to play a valued role supporting diverse customers around the world.”
