Britten-Norman signs new $6 million aircraft contract

At Farnborough International Air Show 2012 Britten-Norman announced a new contract for the supply of aircraft to a new customer located in the Asia Pacific region.

The contract is for the supply of two Rolls Royce powered turbine Islanders, which will be supplied in accordance with an exacting specification as closely defined by the customer.

The aircraft will be two of the first aircraft to be supplied under a new supplier agreement with the company’s key sub contractor in Bucharest, Romania. Sub components are manufactured at the sub contractor and then shipped to the Daedalus Airfield Lee-On-the-Solent for assembly, fit out, first flight and delivery. Helping to create valuable skilled and high tech employment in the UK, the aircraft are to be test flown and delivered from the company’s new manufacturing facilities at Daedalus Airfield, Lee-on-the-Solent, Hampshire, UK.

Delivery of the aircraft is scheduled for 2013.
