SINGAPORE, 12-2-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — ST Aerospace and Alenia Aermacchi will deliver the last of the 12 M-346 new generation advanced trainers to the RSAF in March 2014, following the contract that was signed in late 2010. Currently, a total of 10 aircraft have been delivered along with the delivery of the relevant ground based training system and the associated M-346 initial logistics support package.
In February 2013, the RSAF commenced the pilot training in its Advanced Training School at the Cazaux Air Base in France, while in March 2013 the first training flight for a pilot trainee in the M-346 was successfully conducted. This event marked the beginning of the full spectrum 3rd Generation Integrated Pilot Training System for the RSAF and it was also an important milestone for the M-346 programme.
The close collaboration between ST Aerospace (“Prime Contractor”) and its partners, Alenia Aermacchi and The Boeing Company, has allowed for the achievement of these important milestones.
