“The contract will see five students complete a training program provided solely by BAE Systems instructional staff at the Tamworth flying training college, utilising CT-4B training aircraft,” said John Quaife, BAE’s general manager aviation solutions. The students follow two RBAF pilots who graduated as qualified flying instructors (QFIs) at Tamworth last August.

The five students will commence their training on June 7.
