Patria and Danish Aerotech form consortium for Danish helicopter support

Patria Aviation Oy and Danish Aerotech A/S have established a consortium, PD Aerotech, to offer full life cycle support and integrated logistics support for helicopters and aircraft. The potential customers include among others the Royal Danish Air Force and NATO partners in Europe. This agreement is one step in Patria’s strategy to become the leading life cycle support provider in the Nordic and Baltic Sea region.
 
“Patria has been looking for a reliable partner in Denmark for some time. We feel that now, when the Danish Armed Forces’ have recently announced their intention to outsource certain maintenance tasks, is the right time to act. I am convinced that combining our knowledge and skills with the Danish Aerotech’s expertise we will be able to offer our customers cost efficient life cycle maintenance and logistic support to military aircraft and helicopters”, says Aarne Nieminen, Executive Vice President of Patria Aviation.

The aim of PD Aerotech will be to offer its services through a long-term partnership model to its customers. There will be a strong focus on the support of a flexible transition from the present three level maintenance system, now performed solely by the Armed Forces, to a two level system based on a public-private partnership – a system which has been operating in Finland for more than 40 years with Patria Aviation as an important player.

PD Aerotech will operate from Danish Aerotech's facilities at Karup Air Base, Denmark. “Danish Aerotech was established in 1992 when the Royal Danish Air Force privatised its main workshops. Therefore we have more than a decade’s experience of working closely with the Air Force to build on, when preparing to meet their future maintenance requirements”, says Søren E. Petersen, CEO of Danish Aerotech.
 
Patria Aviation with more than 700 employees performs through its business units life cycle support and integrated logistic support for helicopters and aircraft in the Nordic and the Baltic Sea region. Helicopters Business Unit, where Patria Ostermans and Patria Heli-Support are integrated, was recently founded as a result of Patria Aviation Business Strategy to strengthen its position within the business area of life cycle support and integrated logistic support for helicopters in the selected region. Recently Patria Aviation has completed the assembly of the F-18 fighter aircraft, and is now assembling NH 90 helicopters and engines for the Nordic countries. Patria Aviation also owns Patria Pilot Training Oy providing training to the Finnish Air Force as well as international military and civilian organisations.

Patria is an internationally operating Aerospace and Defence Group with significant positions in the Nordic and Baltic Sea countries. Patria’s main business areas are armoured wheeled vehicles, mortars and field gun systems and their life cycle support as well as life cycle support of helicopters and aircraft. Patria’s owners are the Finnish State and EADS, European Aerospace, Defence and Space Company.

Danish Aerotech specialises in the production and maintenance of mechanical, electrical and electronic parts and subassemblies for aircraft and helicopters, such as EH-101, Lynx, Sea King, AWACS, and F-16. It performs maintenance from line to depot level on aircraft such as the RDAF T-17 as well as Life Cycle Maintenance on missiles. Danish Aerotech also offers a modular solution to reconfiguration of transport aircraft.

Notícia do jornal "O Estado de São Paulo" de 30/05/2004:

"Aeronáutica vai `blindar´ fronteiras da Amazônia

Força aprova construção de mais duas bases na região, que fecham área de proteção


TÂNIA MONTEIRO


BRASÍLIA - Preocupado em fechar a fronteira oeste do País para tentar reduzir as invasões no espaço aéreo brasileiro, principalmente por aviões usados pelo narcotráfico, a Aeronáutica aprovou a construção de mais duas bases aéreas na região amazônica, em Eirunepé (AM) e Vilhena (RO). Com essas duas bases, a Força Aérea Brasileira (FAB) fecha o arco de proteção das fronteiras com a Colômbia, Peru e Bolívia, três grandes preocupações do governo.

O início das obras foi aprovado nesta semana. O Estado já havia revelado que o governo decidiu transformar a Amazônia em sua prioridade em termos de segurança nacional. Para lá, estão sendo transferidas unidades militares que antes estavam localizadas no litoral ou no Cone Sul, traçando, assim, um novo planejamento estratégico, onde a atenção principal é fronteira seca do Brasil.

A necessidade de reforço na aérea foi detectada a partir da avaliação de que houve aumento de 20% nas violações do céus brasileiros, pela Amazônia, nos primeiros meses do ano. No Sul também houve aumento, só que menor, de 10%.

A Amazônia já conta hoje com as base aéreas de Boa Vista (RR), Manaus (AM), Porto Velho (RO) e Belém (PA) e está em construção a base de São Gabriel da Cachoeira (AM). Estão previstas ainda as Bases Aéreas de Cachimbo (PA), de Cuiabá (MT) e Macapá (AP), além das de Vilhena e Eirunepé.

A estratégia da Aeronáutica é fazer um rodízio de aeronaves entre as bases, de forma que não se saberá que aviões e helicópteros estarão onde, em que data e executando que tipo de missão. Dessa forma, em duas horas, qualquer aeronave chegará ao ponto devido, mesmo que esteja o mais longe possível daquela base onde ela deverá operar, protegendo a fronteira, desde a Guiana Francesa até a Bolívia. Com isso, não haverá necessidade de aumento de efetivo da FAB, porque militares estão sendo deslocados de outras unidades.

O que a FAB chama de `arrumação da fronteira´ prosseguirá com a construção de novas bases aéreas em Cascavel (PR), Santa Vitória do Palmar, na ponta do Rio Grande do Sul, fronteira com o Uruguai e em Caravelas (BA). As bases se juntarão às unidades de Santa Maria (RS) e Campo Grande (MS).

Apesar da carência de recursos, a Aeronáutica está convencida de que não faltará verba para a construção das bases, já que a maior parte das obras será feita pela Comara - entidade da FAB que constrói aeroportos, hangares e pistas de pouso na Amazônia. As cidades que foram escolhidas pela FAB na Amazônia para a construção das novas unidades usaram pelo menos dois critérios: a proximidade estratégica com a fronteira seca oeste e a existência de instalações do Sistema de Vigilância da Amazônia (Sivam).

O governo entende que, embora essas medidas não eliminem completamente o tráfico de drogas na região amazônica, as novas bases aéreas servirão como elemento de dissuasão.

Reforços - A Marinha e o Exército prosseguem reforçando suas instalações e equipamentos. Depois de ampliar a área de atuação do Projeto Calha Norte, incluindo entre as áreas de ocupação a Ilha de Marajó e os Estados do Acre e Rondônia, até o limite com Mato Grosso, a Marinha inaugurou um novo comando naval da Amazônia Ocidental, na Ilha de São Vicente.

O Exército prossegue na instalação da Brigada de Selva de São Gabriel da Cachoeira, no Amazonas, que só estará concluída em fins de 2005, por causa da falta de recursos. O Exército planeja, ainda, construir uma unidade especial em Querari, por causa das preocupações que exigem uma vigilância constante e completa em relação à fronteira com a Colômbia.

Com as transferências, o Exército ampliará a presença na área para pelo menos 25 mil soldados, ainda este ano. Hoje são 22 mil, o que corresponde a 12% do efetivo da Força. Há, ainda, planos de mais dois pelotões de fronteira no Acre e em Rondônia, as novas áreas do Calha Norte."
As pessoas te pesam? Não as carregue nos ombros. Leva-as no coração. (Dom Hélder Câmara)

MoD to sell off undelivered Eurofighters
By Sean Rayment Defence Correspondent
(Filed: 30/05/2004)


The Ministry of Defence is seeking to sell off dozens of Eurofighter aircraft before it has even received them in an attempt to avoid further embarrassment over the escalating cost of the project.

The Government is committed to buying 232 Eurofighters despite concerns that the aircraft, which is 10 years behind schedule and £5.4 billion overspent on a budget of about £15 billion, is already outdated and not suited for modern warfare.

Ministers are now planning to sell up to 50 of the jets to Austria and Singapore instead of first re-equipping the Royal Air Force. The aircraft, which cost about £43 million each, could even be sold off at a loss if a country bids for a large number of them. Other countries on a list of potential purchasers include Norway and South Korea.

Austria has agreed to purchase 18 aircraft, while Greece, which had said it was interested in buying 60 British Eurofighters, has deferred a decision on the final contract until after the Olympic Games.

The Government had agreed to buy its Eurofighters in three separate packages of 55, 88 and 89, over the next 10 years as part of a joint project with Germany, Italy and Spain.

The RAF has already taken delivery of six of the aircraft, which are being used to train pilots. The arrival of the remaining 49 from the first tranche will be delayed, however, if required by other countries.

Although senior RAF officers have tried to argue that the full complement of 232 aircraft is essential for the security of Britain, the heads of the Army and the Royal Navy have convinced the Government that the money could be better used on more relevant defence projects.

The decision to sell off some of Britain's Eurofighters was disclosed by Adam Ingram, the Armed Forces minister, in a reply to a parliamentary question by Norman Lamb, a Liberal Democrat MP.

Mr Ingram said: "Some consideration has been given to the scope to provide for early export of Eurofighter to potential overseas customers.

"If pursued, a sale might be accomplished by adjusting the delivery profile to the RAF. The RAF remains, however, the primary customer for these aircraft and any decision made will take full account of its requirements."

Paul Keetch, the defence spokesman for the Liberal Democrats, said: "If other countries get their hands on Eurofighter it will be a blow to our pilots who have been waiting for this plane for years.

"The fact that the Ministry of Defence is trying to sell off planes ordered for the RAF might make financial sense, but it is a damning indictment of government procurement strategy."

The embarrassing revelation comes just days after it emerged that the Eurofighter's test pilots had been told to avoid flying through clouds because computer problems risked throwing the aircraft into a "catastrophic spin".

In a leaked report by a test pilot it emerged that the computer had a tendency to switch from flight mode to ground mode while still in the air.

Eurofighter was originally conceived 30 years ago to attack formations of Soviet bombers attempting to penetrate Western airspace before a full-scale invasion of Europe.

When the threat of invasion disappeared with the collapse of the Soviet Union, the aircraft was remodelled to become a multi-role aircraft. The project has since been beset with a succession of problems, which have delayed the arrival of the aircraft and pushed up the cost.

Two weeks ago, Mr Ingram was also forced to admit that the separate £25 billion Joint Strike Fighter project was also facing serious difficulties after it emerged that the aircraft, which is due to replace the Harrier jump jet, was more than 3,000lb too heavy to fly safely.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman confirmed that the Government was examining a deal that would see Eurofighters delivered to the Austrian air force before being delivered to the RAF.

All Eurofighters were recently grounded because of problems with landing gear and brakes - a problem described by the manufacturers, British AerospaceSystems, as "teething troubles".

In 2002, during a test flight, a Spanish Eurofighter crashed after both of its engines failed. Both crew ejected and survived.

A credibilidade do Sunday Telegraph ( mais conhecido com "Torygraph" pela sua simpatia pelos Tories) é ZERO.

Mas a notícia tem um fundo de verdade. Aproveitando a alta do preço do petróleo, o consórcio está a tentar vender Typhoons à Arábia Saudita. Ora para melhorar as condições de venda, o governo inglês disponiblizou que alguns desse aviões a serem vendidos saiam do lote destinados à RAF. Mais tarde eles receberiam o nº correspondente a esses aviões "desviados".-

Algo de semelhante pode acontecer com Singapura.

A história das nuvens é um mito urbano.

E os projectos aeronáuticos militares em que um dos protótipos não teve um acidente são bastante raros...
I hope that you accept Nature as It is - absurd.

Lamento ter de dizer isto aos nossos colegas brasileiros mas aqui vai: QUE TRISTEZA!!! :shock:
Ainda que não indiquem valores, estou em crêr que pelo preço de construção de cada uma dessas bases poderiam encomendar à EMBRAER pelo menos 20 AMX e esquecer essa do Chimarrão, ooops... quero dizer rodízio. Embora eu acredite na honestidade de todos os militares brasileiros, parece-me que será muito fácil para um grupo narcotraficante subornar alguém da FAB de modo a descobrir os planos de vôo das diversas esquadrilhas da área referida.

Czech Republic Leases Gripen
   
   
(Source: FMV Swedish Defence Procurement Administration; issued June 14, 2004)
 
   
   Sweden and the Czech Republic has today signed a leasing agreement for 14 Gripen fighter aircraft for 10 years.  
 
FMV (The Swedish Defence Material Administration), representing the Swedish Government, signed an agreement with its equivalent department at the Czech Ministry of Defense, at a ceremony today in Prague. The Czech Republic will lease 14 Gripen fighter aircraft (12 single-seat and 2 two-seat) of the latest version JAS 39 C/D Gripen for a period of ten years (2005-2015) according to the agreement.  
 
The agreement follows the offer submitted by FMV in October 2003, which resulted in the Czech Governments decision to start negotiations with the Swedish government in December 2003. The negotiations have been ongoing since January 2004 and have now been successfully concluded by today's agreement.  
 
The Czech Republic will be the first NATO-country to operate the fourth generation Gripen, to meet the country's national and NATO defense needs.  
 
The Czech Republic will receive the latest C and D versions of the Gripen aircraft. These aircraft are the latest standard of the Gripen and are equipped with full color cockpits, air-to-air refueling probes, and are fully NATO-interoperable. The Gripen aircraft will be delivered to the Czech Republic during April-August 2005.  
 
Sweden will provide extensive operational and tactical training of both Czech pilots and technicians as a part of the agreement. The training will be done in Sweden with the Swedish Air Force who is responsible for the training program.  
 
Saab AB will be responsible for certain adaptations of the Gripen aircraft to meet the Czech requirements. Saab AB will also provide technical support during the whole duration of the leasing period.  
 
Training devices will be supplied by Sweden during the whole leasing period to provide an in-country training capability, and in addition simulator training will be provided in Sweden.  
 
The agreement also covers the provision of the necessary maintenance equipment, a fully integrated logistics support package including spares, ground support equipment, repairs and technical and tactical support systems during the whole leasing period. The integrated logistics support package includes the transport of materiel between Sweden and the Czech Republic, publications and technical support during the whole leasing period. This support concept is the same model as used by the Swedish Air Force.  
 
The Czech Republic is responsible for its own pilots, technicians and for normal maintenance of the Gripen aircraft in addition to consumable items such as aircraft fuel.  
 
The total value of the contract is 19.650 billion CZK.

Aircraft Repair Plant in Moscow Suburb Kubinka Begins Series Upgrade of Su-25 Attack Aircraft

Series upgrade of Russian air force Su-25 attack aircraft has stared at the aircraft repair plant in the Moscow suburb of Kubinka.

"The first three Su-25 attack aircraft have reached the aircraft repair plane in Kubinka for overhaul and reconditioning and a subsequent upgrade," the chief designer of the Sukhoy Attack Aircraft scientific and production concern, Vladimir Babak reported.

He recalled that the first upgraded Su-25SM was built in March 2002. "At the present time, a third upgraded experimental Su-25SM is being prepared for lifting into the air. Its flight will take place in the very near future," V. Babak said.

According to him, upgrade of the attack airplanes at the aircraft repair plant in Kubinka will take place in accordance with serial documentation.

The on-board equipment and some systems for weapons use have been fully renovated on the attack aircraft being upgraded. The "Bars" targeting and navigational complex being installed on the airplane is based on a fast-acting new generation computer. It allows an increase of 2-3 times of the precision of weapons usage and 10 times navigation precision. The "Pastel" ELINT station and SUO-39 weapons control system also have been installed on the airplane, and new types of ammunition also are being used.

The Su-25SM allows the use of precision weapons with a laser-guidance system. The airplane's armament will be expanded owing to the use of guided weapons with television and laser guidance.

Nearly 500 Su-25 attack aircraft are in the inventories of 16 countries at the present time. A program for upgrade of the airplane for foreign customers has been developed.

EH101: Canadian Cormorants return to full flight status while Royal Navy continues investigation of Merlin crash of 30 March ‘04

Rotorhub can confirm that the Canadian Cormorants are flying again, despite an aircraft landing last week due to the crew experiencing aircraft vibrations and the ongoing investigation by the UK’s Royal Navy into the crash of one of its Merlins at RAF Culdrose at the end of March ‘04.

The crash occurred as the aircraft was lifting off following a hot refuelling and crew change.

While the RAF and the Royal Navy Merlins are still grounded under a precautionary directive that was issued by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) immediately after the crash, the Canadians returned to normal flying operations on 3 June.

This followed the imposition of their own flying restrictions on 1 April that virtually limited all flights to search and rescue missions only.

Rotorhub flew in a Canadian Cormorant on Monday 15 June on a SAR exercise and no problems were encountered.

In an incident last week that is considered to be an unrelated issue, a Canadian Cormorant crew landed their aircraft away from their airfield after vibrations were experienced during the flight.

As the aircraft had a vibration analysis kit on-board, the crew decided to land immediately and connect the kit to the sensors embedded in the aircraft. When the Cormorant was started again, some excessive vibration was recorded and the decision was made not to fly out before further investigation.

Later analysis revealed a problem concerning the lead-lag damper on the main rotor head. This was changed and the aircraft eventually flown back to its base.

Rotorhub currently understands that the problem with the Royal Navy Merlin might be traced to a maintenance procedural issue.

Other EH101 users - the Italian Navy and the Tokyo police - decided that there was no need impose any flying restrictions on any of their EH101s
