Dear Royal Air Force,

I would like to know:
1. The cost to fly the MQ-9A Reaper (including running the aircraft and ground control station if possible) and the Typhoon, both per hour (including maintenance costs, crew costs, fuel costs, and any other costs available that can be included.
2. The annual (yearly) cost to keep and maintain the Reaper and Typhoon.
3. The purchase cost of the Reaper (including aircraft, ground control stations, satellite links and any other required purchases to fly the Reaper), and purchase cost of the Typhoon (both per unit).
4. How the Reapers are flown, in terms of whether they are purchased, maintained and flown as a Combat Air Patrol of 4, or if they each are a single aircraft which work independently of each other.
5. The cost of training crew members to both fly the Reaper and Typhoon, as well as maintaining it.
6. The gross pay of the crew members on average who work on the Reaper or Typhoon, how many hours on average they work for, and how many crew members are required per flight of the Reaper or Typhoon.

I understand this is a long request, so I would be happy if I were to be able to get the information in separate replies (basically as some information is found out, that I would be able to straight away get that information).

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Valdavicius
