Vertex Aerospace has received a $97.5 million contract renewal to manage and sustain the base supply of the US Air Force’s T-1A Jayhawk trainer aircraft fleet, the company announced on 4 February.

Since the USAF procured the Jayhawk aircraft in 1992 Vertex has provided contractor logistics support for over 170 T-1As.

The company services the aircraft at four USAF bases located in Mississippi, Oklahoma, Texas and at Naval Air Station in Florida.

The T-1A Jayhawk is a medium-range, twin-engine jet trainer used in the advanced phase of specialised undergraduate pilot training for students selected to fly airlift or tanker aircraft.
