Hayward & Green acquires BAe-125s from Royal Flight - 2015-05-28
Three Royal Air Force BAe-125s from 32 Squadron, also known as the Royal Squadron, have been acquired from an MOD tender by the special projects division of West Sussex aerospace engineering firm Hayward & Green Aviation Ltd.
These HS125 were retired from active service in late March. Their disposal marks the end of the RAF’s involvement with the 125. “These aircraft have a unique and intriguing history” explains Director of Operations, Jeremy Green. “As well as active military service in the Gulf and elsewhere, they have also been used by Her Majesty the Queen as well as other members of the Royal family and many leading cabinet politicians including the Prime Minister. The RAF really valued these aircraft for their unflappable reliability.”
The BAe-125s is powered by TFE731-3DR-1H Engines on Honeywell MSP Gold, a robust engineering that has made it a very successful aircraft. Green believes the cosmetically-preserved airframes themselves would make an eye-catching and historic gate guardian. “These aircraft have served Queen and country incredibly well, and have a unique place in Britain’s recent aviation heritage” he concludes.
Hayward & Green Aviation Ltd are offering BAe-125s for sale.
