Beechcraft, a subsidiary of Textron Aviation Inc., has announced that it has signed a contract with Affinity Flying Training Services to provide 10 Beechcraft T-6C Texan II military training aircraft to the U.K. Ministry of Defence’s Military Flying Training System (UKMFTS) program. A second contract has also been signed to include five years of engineering services, parts support, maintenance training and the placement of on-site Field Service Representatives who provide ongoing technical expertise to UKMFTS maintenance personnel.

The T-6C trainers will replace Shorts Tucano T1 aircraft and join the fleet of Beechcraft King Air 350ER turboprops, which are already providing live and synthetic radar training for Royal Navy observers as part of the U.K. MFTS Rear Crew Training program.
