An SLA was signed between OCCAR and the NSPA already in 2014 to benefit from NSPA’s logistic support capabilities in accordance with the Aerospace and Defense Specification 2000M (ASD S2000M).
The fourth amendment recently signed NSPA provides an extension of the services for another 3 years (2019-2021).
Last week of October has been a record week for the A400M flight test. After some weeks where flying activities were much reduced because of maintenance and performance improvement works, the three Grizzlies have waked up stronger and have recovered in one shot their target schedule. As result of this effort, some records have been reached. The two first records are number of flights (20) and flying hours (62) in a week. These figures pushed total number of flights to 230 and total number of flying hours to 773.5. On the other hand, MSN002 reached 100 flights and catch MSN001, ending the week with a total of 97 flights.
