Draken L-159 ALCAs - Teesside Airport

Post by TonyO » Tue Jan 18, 2022 9:44 pm

Draken Europe has announced its intention to base L-159s at Teesside Airport alongside the Falcon 20s. Obviously these are all ex-Czech Air Force and will presumably be used on UK defence contracts.

Some details here: https://drakeneurope.aero/jobs under L-159 Captain.

Details of the 3-year interim competition are at the link below. Hopefully the UK's NGOT programme will deliver something more threat representative for 2025/26 onwards!

First one ( may be two of them?) N159EM I'm informed has reached Greenland today. DTV Movements report that the first two are expected tomorrow
