Royal Navy to be particpate with Avenger T.1
29 August 2012
The Royal Navy's latest fixed wing addition, the Avenger T.1, shall be participating in this year's airshow static line up. It will be the first time ever the aircraft shall be displayed outside the United Kingdom, after it's first ever public appearance at RAF Leuchars, Scotland, two weeks before Malta’s airshow.
The Royal Navy's 750 Naval Air Squadron uses the King Air Avenger T1 to train Royal Navy Observers. It is part of the UK Military Flying Training System, and operates from Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose in Cornwall. Student Observers undertake a 16 week course which introduces them to using aircraft radar and mission systems, and consolidates navigation, emergency handling, and general airmanship.
The Avenger T.1 replaces the Jetstream T.1 which was a regular participant at the Airshow. The last time the Royal Navy's Jetstream participated was in 2008 when two aircraft where on Static display. The Malta Aviation Society would like to thank the Royal navy for accepting the invitation with the hope that the Avenger would be a regular visitor in the Malta International Airshow.
