The Boeing Company has been selected by the U.S. Air Force to provide aircrew training and courseware development services to support training missions conducted by Air National Guard F-16 aircrews.
The contract, valued at $5.3 million, was awarded by Headquarters Air Education and Training Command at Randolph Air Force Base, Texas. The contract consists of a nine-month basic award with two one-year options.
Under the new contract that begins Nov. 15, Boeing will provide F-16 aircrew training and courseware services to support Air National Guard flying training units at Kelly Air Force Base, Texas, and at Springfield-Beckley Municipal Airport, Springfield, Ohio.
The work requires academic and training devices instruction for Air National Guard F-16 student pilots, as well as management of academic learning centers and computer-based training. Boeing will provide computer systems analysis, technical repair support, documentation, equipment and training source materials.
"The award of this training contract to Boeing demonstrates that we continue to provide the best value in aircrew training services," said Glenn Hess, vice president of Logistics Support Services. "We intend to continue building on these abilities as we expand our support services programs."
Boeing Aerospace Operations, part of the Aerospace Support business, will provide about 25 people to perform the work at the two Air National Guard locations.
