Paramount Aerospace to expand support to U.S. Air Force adversary air training


Paramount Aerospace Systems USA (PAS USA), a subsidiary of Africa based, global aerospace and technology company Paramount Group, will expand its maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services and training support for the Mirage F1 fighter fleet operated by the Airborne Tactical Advantage Company, LLC (ATAC), as ATAC has been awarded new contracts to provide adversary air (‘ADAIR’) pilot training to the U.S. Air Force over the course of the next 4.5 years.

The Virginia-headquartered ATAC has been selected to provide three U.S. Air Force bases (Luke Air Force Base in Arizona, Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico and Eglin Air Force Base in Florida) with adversary air live training. Paramount Aerospace Systems USA intends to scale significantly in both staff and services to meet the requirements of ATAC, including recruiting and training 18-20 personnel at the company’s U.S. headquarters at Alliance Field in Fort Worth, Texas.

Paramount Aerospace Systems’ current services comprise maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), the servicing of airframes and return to service (RTS) of aircraft. Looking to the future, the U.S.-based company aims to expand upon these services, expanding to ‘Depot level (D-level)’ capabilities, offering upgrades and extensive modifications and deep level maintenance services, depending on client requirements.

Paramount Aerospace Systems has quickly established itself as a reliable and highly valued Mirage F1 and legacy fighter partner in the United States. The company has instituted a world-class engine maintenance facility and workshop in Fort Worth Texas, both for its customers operating within Alliance Field and remotely from Lakeland, Florida. Paramount’s Mirage F1 engine facility and workshop is the only facility of its kind presently operational internationally.

ATAC’s first refurbished, supersonic, radar-equipped Mirage F1 performed its initial flight in the United States on August 22nd, 2019, then assisted by Paramount in providing Mirage F1 training. Paramount Group later provided upgrade and engineering support for partner Draken International’s first regenerated Mirage F1 maiden flight, held in Lakeland, Florida on November 19th, 2019.

Paramount Aerospace Systems' other customer, Draken International, has also been selected by the U.S. Air Force to support aircrew training at three locations.
