Policy and Objectives

With production aircraft deliveries completed in the 1990s, Panavia’s current main business focus areas are ensuring that the aircraft technically continues to provide optimum mission capability, that effective provision of spares, repairs and engineering support services delivers the operational availability demanded by the user air forces and that industrial capability across the full range of services and throughout the supply chain remains available to support the operators as long as the aircraft is in service. The three pillars of Panavia’s service provision to its customers are thus:


Implement future upgrading for the Weapon System in the evolving operational scenario


Enable Weapon System operation at pre-determined fleet levels


Maintain the Weapon System fit up to OSD at no degraded performance and in airworthness conditions
