FR Aviation was created in 1985, from the airfield division of FR Limited. It is the founding company within Cobham’s Flight Operations and Services Group, formed in 2000 as one of the three Groups within Cobham plc. Today the Group operates more than 150 aircraft around the world based in Europe, South East Asia and Australia. FR Aviation’s fleet of Dassault Falcon aircraft provides Air Defence Training (Electronic Warfare, Target Towing and Threat Simulation) for the Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and other NATO forces. A similar service is provided for the French Navy (through AVdef) and for Malaysia (through Falcon Special Air Services).
