Oman to update air worthiness rules of RAFO fleet with Air Partner

Posted 13 June 2017 · Add Comment

Air Partner's aviation safety consultancy company Baines Simmons has been awarded a contract to provide aviation safety consultancy services to the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO).

The objective of the programme is to improve and safeguard the airworthiness of all RAFO aircraft for years to come by developing a new Continuing Airworthiness ruleset for RAFO. RAFO previously used a military regulatory system based on UK legacy requirements, but this will be updated to operate in line with international modern military standards.
The programme is particularly pertinent following the arrival of new fleets of Typhoon and Hawk 200 aircraft in Oman.
The Baines Simmons consultancy and training programme is based on the newly completed European Military Airworthiness Requirements (EMARs), as well as their source European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations.
Mark Briffa, Group CEO of Air Partner said: “When we acquired Baines Simmons in 2015, we knew its international role as a trusted advisor to more than 750 aviation organisations and more than 40 aviation authorities would fit well with Air Partner’s international blue chip client base. Since the acquisition, Baines Simmons has secured several new contracts, including a 10-year contract with the Isle of Man, and I am delighted that we are now working with the Royal Air Force of Oman too. We look forward to building what I hope will be the start of a long-term relationship.”
