Paramount Group has acquired four Dassault Mirage F1 fighter aircraft from the French government to enhance its pilot training capabilities, the company announced on 5 October.

The aircraft will be operated by Paramount Group subsidiary Paramount Aerospace Systems in support of

pilot training - from ab initio to advanced fighter training - services.

The company has capability on this aircraft type with full airframe and engine overhaul capability, as well as the ability to upgrade and modernise avionics and mission systems.

Brian Greyling, CEO of Paramount Aerospace Systems, said: 'One of the most important trends in today’s military aviation market is the increasing utilisation of legacy aircraft for adversary training by air forces. The new acquisition of the Mirage F1 aircraft will inject additional ‘top gun’ capability into Paramount Group’s advanced

pilot training programmes. Paramount Aerospace Systems is now recognised as the only privately-owned aerospace company in the world that is capable of offering military type aircraft training from ab initio to supersonic fighter capability.'
