RNZAF - Ohakea

RNZAF Base Ohakea

The recently signed current Royal 
New Zealand Air Force B200 contract is for the provision by lease of four King Air B200 aircraft to support 42 Squadron. This fleet provides primarily Advanced Pilot training capability and secondly VIP Transport for the New Zealand Airforce.

The B200 aircraft is an excellent platform for the roles undertaken by 42Squadron with high technology Proline 21 glass cockpit and powerful twin PT6 engines.

Hawker Pacific is the Prime Contractor for this 'turnkey' performance based contract, providing complete through life support including:

  • Maintenance and configuration management under an Authorised Maintenance Organisation (AMO)
  • Engineering support as an Authorised Engineering Organisation (AEO)
  • Logistics support including management of spares and components




The contract is performance based with aircraft availability critical to 42 Squadron operations. As with our other fleet support programs the success of this program is heavily dependent on the use of our Hybrid Airworthiness® model.
