BAE Systems and MoD extend Typhoon agreement

BAE Systems and the UK Ministry of Defence have agreed to extend the Typhoon Availability Service (TAS) for the in-service support of the RAF’s Typhoon fleet by 12 months until the end of 2014.

Under the £100m TAS contract, BAE Systems is responsible for delivering Typhoon aircrew and ground crew training, maintenance and the servicing of the aircraft, providing technical support and managing spares, repairs and logistics.

BAE Systems supports the fleet at RAF Coningsby, RAF Leuchars and the Falkland Islands.
