BAE SYSTEMS to transfer technical responsibility for UK-based bulldog aircraft to DHSL
31 May 2002
BAE Systems and De Havilland Support Ltd (DHSL) have signed a Heads of Agreement to transfer technical responsibility for the UK-based Scottish Aviation Bulldog aircraft, from BAE Systems Regional Aircraft at Prestwick to DHSL based at Duxford in Cambridgeshire.
The transfer date for all UK-based aircraft will be announced on completion of negotiation and approval of the CAA to proceed. Responsibility for all non-UK aircraft will remain with BAE Systems.
DHS Ltd was formed in 2001, with assistance from BAE Systems, to support legacy De Havilland aircraft. This venture has proved successful to date with customers of these types enjoying a dedicated service consistent with the needs of the aircraft. In December 2001, BAE Systems announced the transfer of responsibility for the Beagle Pup to DHSL and the Bulldog decision is a natural progression.
