The Transfer of Title of A400M MSN103 was signed on 16 June, becoming the 87th aircraft delivered to Nations under the OCCAR contract. However, this one was an important achievement for OCCAR, as it was the first one to be completed with full delegation from Germany, allowing OCCAR to perform the inspections and functional checks on their behalf, and also completed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In June 2016, the A400M Programme made a further key step regarding its paratrooper delivery capability. From 13 to 24 June, a test campaign was organised with Airbus Defense and Space in South-West France to clear static line jump operations of paratroopers.
An inaugural A400M User Forum was held from the 5th to 7th of April 2016 in Seville, Spain and was attended by a wide range of attendees (around 150 people in total) from the end user community, including representatives from each Participating State, Malaysia, AMSL (Airbus Military Sociedad Limitada) and OCCAR-EA.
