Embraer Phenom 100 for UK training programme
The Embraer Phenom 100 business jet was selected to provide multi-engine pilot training to armed forces aircrew in the United Kingdom. The contract with Affinity Flight Training Services will provide five aircraft to the UK Ministry of Defence’s Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS) programme. The contract includes support services and an option for additional follow on aircraft.
The Fixed Wing programme is intended to replace the elementary, multiengine and basic flying training that is currently delivered on ageing platforms with a new fully integrated solution that provides state-of-the-art training aircraft, ground based training devices and courseware all derived from the training design developed by Ascent Flight Training, the training service provider of the MFTS programme in UK. In 2014, Affinity was selected by Ascent Flight Training to provide and operate the aircraft selected for the MFTS programme.
“We are very proud to be selected in such an important programme for United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence”, said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of
