The Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) will receive training support from BAE Systems under a new agreement between the Governments of Saudi Arabia and UK.

Under the Salam Support Solution, BAE will support operations of RSAF Typhoon fleet for three years. The agreement will include training for RSAF Typhoon pilots and Typhoon multiskilled aircraft technicians in UK.

Typhoon deputy managing director Cliff Robson said the Salam Support Solution builds on BAE Systems’s knowledge and experience gained working alongside the RAF in supporting the UK’s Typhoon fleet.

“This will provide the Royal Saudi Air Force with the necessary support as the Typhoon transitions from entry-into-service to full operation,” he said.

The air force began flying operations following the delivery of the first four of 72 Typhoon aircraft, becoming the fifth air force in the world to fly tranche 2 Typhoons.
