“We are once again honoured to be selected by NASA to complete another modernisation project on their aircraft.”
“Because of the mission profiles flown by the HU-25A aircraft, it takes advanced technical knowledge and diligent project management to complete the upgrades which we have without exception. In fact, our expertise and technical abilities were selected as the “best value” for the Government which we are very proud of. It is a great accomplishment and a great privilege to once again serve NASA!” added Bailey.
The HU-25 was a designation given by Dassault to Falcon 20 aircraft that were desitined for the United States Coast Coast.
