QinetiQ Avro RJ70

Retirement of the Empire Test Pilots' School's last Andover and BAC One-Eleven has seen another British airliner type joining the QinetiQ fleet - the Avro RJ, a development of the British Aerospace 146. It has purchased two ex-commercial aircraft: an RJ100 and, attending the Air Tattoo for the first time in 2014, a smaller RJ70. The RJ70 entered service with QinetiQ last year. The two aircraft, both specially instrumented, support ETPS in the instruction of large aircraft test techniques, low-speed flight and civil certification testing.
