The Royal Air Force Typhoon is a world class multi-role combat aircraft capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations, from air policing and peace support, through to high intensity conflict. The RAF Typhoon Display Team provides the opportunity to showcase this amazing aircraft to the general public
In 2020, Flight Lieutenant Dean Rogers will be in the Typhoon hot seat, designing his own display to show off the Typhoon’s immense power and acceleration, and ensuring that the display team's catchphrase of #BringTheNoise is as appropriate as ever. Dean follows on from Flight Lieutenant Jim Peterson who piloted the plane during 2018 and 2019, including for the RAF100 centenary celebrations in 2018.
Leonardo is a partner company of the Eurofighter Typhoon consortium and is proud to continue its sponsorship of the RAF Typhoon Display Team throughout 2020. In addition to building the aircraft, Leonardo in the UK is responsible for delivering over 60% of the on-board avionics including leading the consortia that develop both the Typhoon's Radar and Defensive Aid Sub-System (DASS) from our Edinburgh and Luton sites respectively. Additionally, Leonardo is part of the ‘Typhoon Total Availability eNterprise’ (TyTAN), which is a 10-year support solution for the RAF Force Typhoon fleet aimed at improving aircraft availability while reducing the costs of operating the fleet based at RAF Coningsby and RAF Lossiemouth by more than a third.
