EADS Eurofighter Signs with Greece

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) The fighter jet unit of aerospace giant European Aeronautic Defence & Space SA (EADS) signed a €9.7 million deal with Greece’s government controlled aerospace company Hellenic Aerospace Industry SA on February 5. Under the agreement, Hellenic Aerospace will obtain technology and know-how to bolster its airframe design and development capability at a newly created design centre recently opened by the company. The move comes before a much-anticipated tender by the Greek air force to purchase several dozen next- generation fighter aircraft. EADS’ warplane unit, Eurofigher, is one of several companies hoping to win a deal with Greece. Associated Press: EADS Eurofighter signs Greek contract
