Triumph Group’s Geared Solutions business has signed a five-year licensing agreement with RUAG to continue providing F/A-18 A-D aircraft mounted accessory drive (AMAD) sustainment support.

The latest licensing agreement extension will see both the companies to continue providing test, repair and overhaul support for the F/A-18 Hornet AMAD military applications.

Triumph’s repair procedures and spares pool for the F/A-18 AMAD product line is used by RUAG at its facilities in Interlaken/Wilderswil, Switzerland to support the international military operators.

The licence agreement also allows Triumph to sustain all non-US military F/A-18 AMAD customers through RUAG.

This further ensures the companies together provide readiness for different F/A-18 A-D variants to various international operators. 

Triumph Geared Solutions president Pete Gibson said: “Triumph and RUAG have maintained a long-standing relationship since 2001 on the F/A-18 AMAD product line and are continually exploring future partnership opportunities on next generation commercial and military applications.

“We are excited to have their continued support for our international customer base.”

The F/A-18 Hornet fighter aircraft is primarily used for traditional strike applications, including close air support and interdiction.

The US Navy, fighter attack squadrons of the US Marine Corps and Marine Corps Reserve squadrons use the F/A-18 A-D variants.

RUAG Life Cycle Management Air business unit head Christian Roduner said: “The close partnership we have maintained with Triumph enables us to support our military customers with value added solutions, while supporting sustainment and readiness levels.”

In June 2020, Triumph Group’s company Triumph Systems & Support – Mechanical Solutions was awarded a contract to supply mechanical controls for the US Navy’s Advanced Helicopter Training System programme.
