Farnborough-based Data Sciences has won the £500,000 ($780,000) contract to supply a Jetstream Instrument Trainer (JIT) to the RAF Multi-Engined Training Squadron (METS) at RAF Cranwell.

Announcing the news at Farnborough, Andy Roberts, Data Sciences chief executive officer, says: "The development time for the trainer is only eight months due to our solution making extensive re-use of existing simulation software."

The JIT is a static, fixed-base flight training device, representing the cockpit, associated instrumentation, navigation aids, flying controls and performance of the RAF Jetstream T Mk1, turboprop aircraft.
