£300m for next generation military aircraft

The Ministry of Defence will invest more than £300 million to support the introduction of the A400M military transport plane. Some £226 million will go on a new training centre to train the personnel who will support and maintain the plane, while £80 million has been earmarked to modify the standard A400M for RAF use.

Securing up to 300 jobs, the training centre will house two flight simulators to train pilots, a cockpit simulator to train engineers, and other computer-based training aids. 

The MoD is buying 22 A400M aircraft at a cost of some £3.2 billion. Replacing the C-130 Hercules, the A400M fleet will help move to people and equipment around the world quickly for military and humanitarian operations.
