Babcock has signed an 11-year agreement with BAE Systems for continued support to the Royal Air Force (RAF)’s Hawk fleet at RAF Valley, Anglesey.

The contract will secure hundreds of jobs in North Wales, and provide local economic value and job opportunities, including aeronautical engineering apprenticeships.

As part of the contract, Babcock will continue to provide maintenance and groundcrew training in support of the RAF’s Hawk TMk2 fleet, ensuring the output of fast jet pilots, who then go on to operate the Typhoon and F-35 aircraft.

Babcock will also be providing both forward and depth maintenance to the RAF’s Red Arrows display team, ensuring that they continue to ‘wow’ the world with their amazing aerobatic displays. The new contract will deliver efficiencies through new ways of working and harnessing the use of technology to drive savings which will be reinvested into the RAF’s training capability.
