Flight Lieutenant Hilton Baker from the Royal New Zealand Air Force is presenting about RNZAF P-3 operations.
The RNZAF has six P-3s, which they plan to operate through 2025.
Current roles of the RNZAF P-3 vary and include anti-submarine warfare, disaster relief, airshows, surveillance and reconnaissance, and even aeromedical evacuation. They carry out operations across the world.
RNZAF challenges include radomes, weapon systems, acoustic processor and sea rescue obsolescence. The RNZAF has a System Upgrade Project that is underway to improve P-3 mission systems.
