The company will now continue to sustain the Hawk fleet at RAAF Base Williamtown and RAAF Base Pearce until at least 2020, with further potential extensions available until 2026.
The role includes all deeper-level and operational maintenance for the 33 aircraft.
“Securing this extension underscores the success of our longstanding partnership with the RAAF, and the performance of the 300 employees working on this program,” said Steve Drury, director for Aerospace at BAE Systems Australia.
“Since 2013, BAE Systems’ support of the fleet has achieved all contract key performance indicators, including aircraft availability and overall fleet management.”
