Cadets and staff from 967 BAe Warton Squadron were given a guided tour of the BAE Systems site at Warton earlier this month.
Organised by the Squadron’s President, who is also BAE Systems’ Military Liaison Executive, the Cadets were shown a presentation describing how the Warton site fits into the wider BAE Systems business before being given a guided tour of some the aircraft production and maintenance hangars.
The highlight was a tour around the Typhoon Final Assembly facility, where the various components are brought together from the 4 partner Nations and assembled into shiny new Eurofighter Typhoons.
Following the visit Flt Lt Steve Faulkner said:
This was a unique and special opportunity for 967 Squadron Cadets. The visit supports our aviation training syllabus and provides a fantastic insight into a modern aircraft manufacturing organisation. My thanks to BAE Systems for their hospitality and their sponsorship of our new Squadron Banner for display at local events.
