    <p>STEWART PENNEY/LONDON</p> <p>R-R and VT Aerospace join bid to become systems integrators for UK training programme</p> <p>Lockheed Martin has recruited Rolls-Royce and VT Aerospace as partners in a bid to become the integrator for the UK's Military Flying Training System (MFTS). The training systems integrator will run the overall programme.</p> <p>MFTS will be a private finance initiative (PFI)-funded project to overhaul aircrew instruction for the Royal Air Force, Royal Navy and Army Air Corps, from ab initio training to operational conversion entry level. BAE Systems, Boeing and EADS are also expected to bid.</p> <p>James Keeler, Lockheed Martin MFTS project director, says R-R's and VT's participation is important as "we don't want to offer a US solution to the UK". R-R has project management and PFI financing experience, while VT provides outsourced training services to UK and other armed forces.</p> <p>Keeler says Lockheed Martin trains more than 18,000 aircrew in the USAhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Lockheed-Martin-recruits-MFTS-contest-partners-171251/

    <p>The UK's Military Flying Training System could provide high-quality training for the next 25 years, but there are pitfalls to be avoided</p> <p>The UK's Military Flying Training System (MFTS) programme is beginning to heat up with Lockheed Martin's formation of a team to bid for the overall programme management role - the so-called training systems integrator. Within the next six months or so the Ministry of Defence should issue invitations to negotiate. The eventual winner will provide an initial service from April 2007.</p> <p>MFTS, however, is far more complicated and bolder than almost all other UK defence procurements. Not only will it be acquired under the private finance initiative (PFI), it will also encompass the gamut of UK military training: the three services, pilots, navigators and "rear-crew", from post-selection screening to operational conversion unit (OCU) entry. </p> <p>There are inevitably issues with handing over the entire training system to a private contrachttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Get-it-right-171243/
