Following demonstration flights of the original NIMBUS L382G courtesy of OSRL,  the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO) ordered a number of Airbus C295 aircraft together with 3 aerial dispersant system to be specially designed for the C295 aircraft using the patented NIMBUS concept.

This system was designed, manufactured, tested and delivered to Airbus Defence & Space (ADS) in Seville, Spain in just 14 months.  Managing Director, Bill Fernie, describes this as “an impressive delivery timescale in view of the complexity of aircraft projects”

To complete the project, Ayles Fernie instructors will be running a training course for RAFO Pilots, Loadmasters and Ground Crew in Oman in early 2015.
