BAE Systems Regional Aircraft is a leading provider of regional aircraft and support services to regional airlines throughout the world, with some 800 aircraft and more than 160 customers in 80 countries. Its aircraft, including the Jetstream family, the BAe 748, ATP, BAe146 and Avro RJ continue to be key drivers in the growth and development of regional airlines.
Customer Support and Engineering, located at Prestwick, Scotland are key to supporting the in-service fleet and providing long-term product integrity. The engineering expertise also extends to increasing work on behalf of third party aircraft OEMs, including Airbus, Boeing and Mitsubishi, as well as work on UAVs and naval programmes. Customer Support continues to develop its business and products with a specific focus on driving down costs. This cost-down focus and competitive integrated support product will support the BAE Systems fleet of aircraft for years to come.
The Asset Management business at Hatfield has a trading portfolio of around 200 aircraft and is the world’s second largest regional jet lessor by fleet value. Asset Management ensures the aircraft portfolio continues to provide a competitive product to the market place whilst developing new opportunities and markets. Its leasing, portfolio management and aircraft finance expertise continues to gain more mandates on non-BAE Systems aircraft types and is recognised as an innovative aircraft leasing and portfolio service provider.
Regional Aircraft has been an asset management, support and engineering business since 2002 after the cessation of regional jet manufacturing by the company.
