Slingsby's T67M260 Firefly is on offer as a screening aircraft and primary trainer. Recent production has led to the delivery from 2002 of three aircraft to Bahrain - where they provide the primary element of a contractor-operated flight school also operating six BAE Systems Hawk 129s - and 16 aircraft to Jordan. However, the US Air Force last year scrapped its entire stored inventory of 110 of the type, which had been grounded in 1997 following three fatal accidents.
