GEARING UP FOR LIMA
How we are getting ready for at this year's Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition
The focus of our presence at this year's LIMA event is our partnership commitment to Malaysia, with Typhoon performance and capabilities taking centre stage on the Eurofighter GmbH stand.
Flight Lieutenant Jamie Norris, this year’s Typhoon Display Pilot, has confirmed that his first display of the season will be performed at LIMA. He said: “It will be an honour to be at LIMA 2013 and to have the opportunity to display some of the capabilities of Typhoon. This will be my first visit to Malaysia and LIMA will give me the opportunity to meet the crowds and engage with fellow pilots.”
Following LIMA, a number of 1 Squadron Typhoons will be based at Butterworth Air Base and will take part in bi-lateral training exercises with the Royal Malaysian Air Force front-line squadrons. The joint exercise gives the air forces an opportunity to work together through a series of air exercises designed to explore the capabilities of respective aircraft types in different scenarios.
