star this property answer text <p>The A400M's engine, the TP-400, is provided by EuroProp International, a subcontractor to Airbus. Problems have been seen on combustion chambers on early versions of the TP-400 degrading at a faster rate than expected; these are currently being replaced with an improved design. The engine's propeller gearbox has also experienced some issues due to faulty components; these are being replaced with new and redesigned parts. This work will be undertaken during periods of planned maintenance to avoid further impacting availability and is expected to be completed by mid-2020. There is no cost to the Ministry of Defence as it is covered by contractual warranties.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>At the A400M Ministerial meeting on 28 June 2019, a decision was made to progress negotiations with the engine manufacturer on the future support solution for the TP-400 engine, with a view to significantly reducing support costs. Ministers directed that Airbus Defence and Space, as the prime contractor, should participate in those negotiations.</p><p>Agreement was also reached to sign a six-nation aircraft support contract to provide common support services and spares to supplement national arrangements and a decision was taken that the A400M Programme Division of OCCAR would relocate from its current base in Toulouse to Madrid in 2022 to enable closer working between the sponsor, prime contractor and subcontractor.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There has been one crash of an industry-operated A400M, on 9 May 2015. The aircraft was on a test flight, having just completed production in Seville. The crash was investigated by the Spanish Air Accident Investigation Authority, who attributed the cause of the accident to how the engine software had been loaded. A fleetwide software change has since been implemented to prevent the possibility of a reoccurrence.</p> more like this

This is planned to conclude by the third quarter of 2020 and will comprise work to upgrade the engines, gearboxes and the Bleed Air Leak Detection System. A separate package of work will provide an avionics update. The work is being undertaken both at RAF Brize Norton and Airbus facilities in Spain (Seville and Getafe).</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The original A400M specification included the requirements to dispatch troops via static line at low and high altitude and freefall from high altitude from both the rear parachute side doors and cargo ramp. Trials have demonstrated that A400M can safely dispatch parachutists via the cargo ramp and using a single side door. At this time that capability has not been used by the UK. Airbus have demonstrated a technical solution to the well-publicised technical challenges of dispatching parachutists simultaneously from both side doors, which is under-going evaluation through the ongoing contracted Airbus development programme.</p><p> </p> more like this
