Atkins and Gama Aviation awarded UK MAR contracts
Atkins and Gama Aviation have been awarded contracts to carry out Military Airworthiness Reviews (MAR) for the RAF’s HQ Air Command (HQ Air) and the British Army’s Joint Helicopter Command (JHC).
The contract covers MARs for HQ Air until 2023 and for JHC until 2025.
From 2013, the Military Aviation Authority has required Airworthiness regulations to be issued and assessed by independent organisations for all UK military aircraft in order to ensure that they are safe, airworthy and fit for development where needed.
David Clark, Aerospace and Defence Market Director at Atkins, said: ‘it’s doubly rewarding to be supporting HQ Air and JHC to keep their aircraft and personnel safe. Our reappointment speaks to the expertise we have demonstrated over the past six years and we look forward to working closely with Gama Aviation and the MoD to ensure aircraft safety continues to be given the due diligence it deserves.’
