The DEAP contract represents an exciting opportunity for Hawker Pacific to further demonstrate the company’s ability to deliver full turn-key operating services on a complex program. Hawker Pacific’s successful bid represented the best value for money option for the Commonwealth, highlighting the company’s experience and ability to integrate the full range of support services including engineering design, maintenance, airworthiness management and flight services in a highly cost-effective manner.
