The maintenance policy and schedule for the UK’s P-8A (Poseidon MRA1) aircraft belong to the US Government, which controls access to them. Therefore, maintenance data and the details of those in receipt of it can be shared only with the authority of the US Government. The UK operates in accordance with these parameters, which permit sharing this information with our primary support partners and other nations as covered by the necessary agreements.
