Boeing wins US Navy maintenance contract
Boeing has been issued a contract that will see it maintain US Navy aircrew training devices for six aircraft types under a new contract announced on 4 December. The $56 million contract, which began on 1 December, signals the company’s move into trainer maintenance for military organisations worldwide.
The contract will run for five years. During this period Boeing will maintain US Navy training devices including the P-3C, EP-3, P-8A, EA-6B, EA-18G and SH-60B systems. The devices are located at US Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville in Florida; US Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii; NAS Whidbey Island in Washington, and Kadena Air Base in Japan.
Mark McGraw, Boeing vice president for training systems and government services, said: ‘This addition to our portfolio is strategically important as we bolster our maritime patrol trainer maintenance business, especially internationally’.
Under a separate US Navy contract, Boeing will deliver training systems for its P-8A aircraft to NAS Jacksonville next year. Other sites will follow as that programme moves into full-rate production. Boeing will provide trainers and all support functions for US Navy P-8A aircrew training.
