    A number of Defence organizations worldwide are moving towards outsourcing. The United Arab Emirates Air Force & Air Defence (UAE AF&AD) is also transforming some of its activities from military entities into civilian organizations. This paper studies the risks associated with the transformation of the UAE AF&AD Flight Test Centre (FTC) into a civilian organization to become a competitive, independent and autonomous outsourcing agency able to undertake additional, complex and specialized aeronautical projects.In this paper, the author describes the FTC “AS IS” organization, mission and function while focusing on the future “TO BE”.
