    EADS has begun air-to-air refuelling clearance work on the Eurofighter Typhoon from the Airbus A310 multi-role tanker transport.

    The aim is to have the aircraft certification on the A310 MRTT by the end of they year. Nine flights are planned to be carried out to gain the approval.

    Two Eurofighter aircraft, instrumented production aircraft (IPA) 3, and IPA 7 have been used so far for the flight trials. These are being carried out from the EADS Military Air Systems site in Manching in southern Germany.
