Relocation of UK Future Strategic Tanker Aircraft (FSTA) Conversion
AirTanker Limited, in which Cobham plc ('Cobham') is a shareholder, has today announced that Airbus Military and Cobham Aviation Services have agreed that the remaining UK Voyager aircraft will now be converted in Spain, rather than by Cobham Aviation Services. This will help to ensure the continued success of the programme by co-locating aircraft engineers undertaking the conversion with the Airbus design office in Spain, so greatly improving efficiency and shortening the supply chain.
There have been no technical issues with the conversion process and there is no material financial impact to Cobham as a result of this change.
