Farnborough 2016: Boeing wins KC-46 MTS but protest looms?

15th July 2016 - 13:00 GMT | by Trevor Nash in Farnborough


The long awaited Boeing KC-46 Pegasus maintenance training system (MTS) has been awarded to Boeing, which beat five competitors to win the prize. The seven year programme is valued at $78 million, including contract options.

The aircrew training system (ATS) element of the programme was awarded to FlightSafety International (FSI) in 2013.

The first of the two training systems, at McConnell Air Force Base, near Wichita will be operational in the second quarter of 2018. The second will be established by 2021 at a location that is yet to be announced by the US Air Force.
