Hawk T Mk1/1A Flight Reference Cards and Aircrew Manual

Alan Evans made this Freedom of Information request to Royal Air Force

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Sir,

I would like to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). I would be very grateful if you could send me the last editions of the following Aircrew Publications (APs):

AP101B-4401-14 Hawk T Mk 1/1A Flight Reference Cards
AP101B-4401-15 Hawk T Mk 1/1A Aircrew Manual

I have conducted an extensive search for the requested APs in previous Ministry of Defence FOIA releases and other on-line sources without success. Therefore, I believe my request should NOT be denied under Section 21 of the FOIA - Information reasonably available to the applicant through other means.

Furthermore, as the Hawk T Mk1 is a basic training aircraft dating from the 1970s, is now only used by the Red Arrows Aerobatic team and is not in training service anymore, I believe the requested APs should NOT be withheld under Section 26(1)(b) - Information prejudicial to the capability, effectiveness or security of relevant forces.

Finally, I would like to confirm the requested APs are for my own personal, private use and NOT for any form of re-use such as commercial publication. I also understand that the requested APs will continue to be protected by Crown Copyright and that my own personal, private use is considered an exception to infringement under the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act.

I hope you will appreciate that I have kept my request very specific and provided additional information to assist you with bringing the cost of compliance below the limits imposed by Section 12 of the FOIA.

I trust you will look favourably upon my FOIA request and would like to thank you in advance for your assistance. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A.R. Evans

As an amendment to the above request, I understand that the Hawk T1 may still be in use with 100 Sqn following the 2019 Air Support to Defence Operational Training (ASDOT) cancellation. I would be grateful if you could factor this in to the above request.

Dear Mr Evans,

 

Thank you for your e-mail of 1 July 2020 about Hawk documentation.

 

I am treating your correspondence as a request for information under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 with the reference 2020/07542

 

The Freedom of Information Act requires a response to be provided to a
request under the Act within 20 working days from date of receipt and we
therefore aim to respond to you by 30 July 2020. Whilst we are working
hard to achieve this, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and the
effect on resources and necessary changes to ways of working, we should
advise that it may take longer to provide a substantive response to some
requests.
