MacTaggart Scott was pleased to learn that the Royal Australian Navy Landing Helicopter Dock (LHD) HMAS Canberra embarked two MV-22B Osprey Military Aircraft onboard and successfully moved the Ospreys off the flight deck, down the elevator lift and into the hangar for the first time at sea during Exercise Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2022.
The trial with the Ospreys is part of the Aircraft Maintenance and Flight Trials Unit (AMAFTU) testing Australia’s ability to embark and stow the aircraft with their pilots, ground crew and maintainers to understand what can be achieved and for what duration.
The company congratulates the Royal Australian Navy for developing the operational capability of the LHD. We take pride in being the supplier of the two aircraft lifts on-board.
