The training, which begins later this year, will include exercises in Aerial Gunnery (live fire) and Electronic Attack to prepare USAFE/UK personnel for the increasingly complex front-line threats which they face whilst conducting global operations.

The programme will involve Cobham’s specially modified Falcon 20 aircraft, equipped with advanced technology solutions to simulate the effects of an enemy’s latest electronic warfare equipment during training exercises.

Paul Armstrong, Vice President and General Manager for Cobham Aviation Services said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract with such a prominent customer through a full and open competitive process.  This reflects our world leading capability and highlights the quality of our technology and training services.”
