Saudi Arabia has launched on Sunday its first locally assembled Hawk jet training aircraft, some of the aircraft’s parts were manufactured by local Saudi companies.

Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman, who is also the deputy prime minister and minister of defense, revealed the plane during a ceremony that was held at King Abdulaziz Air Base in the Eastern Province, in the presence of a number of princes and officials.

The Crown Prince was then briefed on the stages it took to manufacture and assemble the main parts of the jet training air craft. Another highlight of the process is that Saudi youth made 70 percent of the project’s work force, and have assembled 22 aircraft after being trained for more than two years at the hands of international expertise.

The Saudi-British Defense Cooperation Program, in collaboration with BAE Systems (BAE Systems), had overseen the process of training those Saudi youth, and 25 national companies had also participated and oversaw the their training.

The plane was then tested and took off after the go signal was given by the Crown Prince, and the plane passed its test flight and got accepted.

Saudi Arabia has seen a significant development in this area of projects, beside the training aircraft manufacturing project, the Kingdom had earlier launched its very own satellite and nuclear energy projects. All part of the 2030 Vision, that promises a massive modernization effort and the ensuring of a better life.
