Puma Mark 2 trials hosted by Vector Aerospace UK


Vector Aerospace, March 31, 2014 - Vector Aerospace UK, a leading provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services recently supported the characterisation trials of the Radar Warning Receiver on the Puma Mk 2 at its Fleetlands site in Gosport, Hampshire.

Working alongside Airbus Helicopters and the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), the company hosted two separate weeks of trials which constitute part of the new integrated defensive aids suite fitted as part of the Puma Life Extension Programme currently being carried out across the RAF Puma fleet.

This shows how our working relationship with major Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and the UK MoD continues to expand", said Vector Aerospace UK's Operations Director Ross Powlesland. "The variety of rotary wing platforms we can support continues to grow in both the military and civil sectors; having the heliport on site enables us to offer a fly-in, fly-out facility to our diverse customer base".

"During the trials we offered our full flight test capability and specialised storage facilities to ensure that the potential of this new integrated defensive aids suite could be rigorously examined", said Michael Tyrrell, Managing Director for Vector Aerospace UK. "Naturally we were delighted to be involved in such a cutting edge programme and the experience has further developed our strong working relationships with both Airbus Helicopters and the MOD".
