CPI to supply T-38C modification kits
CPI Aerostructures has received a $65.7 million IDIQ contract from the US Air Force to supply T-38 aircraft modification kits, the company announced on 29 July.
The structural modification kits, programme management, logistics and other sustainment services will be supplied in support of Phase 3 of the T-38C Pacer Classic III Fuselage Structural Modification Kit Integration programme (PC III) and the Talon Repair Inspection and Maintenance (TRIM) programme.
The company also received its first delivery order under the contract valued at $3.4 million.
The T-38 is a supersonic jet trainer used by the US Air Force. The PC III and TRIM programmes are being carried out to increase the structural service life of the T-38 beyond 2030.
PC III is a three-phase aircraft modification programme that began in 2011 to increase the structural service life of a certain number of T-38C Talon aircraft. CPI Aerostructures has been supporting this programme since 2015, and will now go on to support the final phase; as well as TRIM, which will extend the structural service life of T-38A and T-38 model types, as well as T-38C models that were not modified during PC III.
