Aircraft support for Air Force could net Northrop Grumman $3.8 billion

On Friday, it was announced that Northrop Grumman has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force to provide Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) for its fleet of KC-10 Extender refueling tanker aircraft. The nine-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a potential value of $3.8 billion.

The contract calls for Northrop Grumman to provide supply chain management, depot-level logistics integration and support, engine maintenance, aircraft maintenance and modifications for the tanker, which is part of the Air Force’s Air Mobility Command arsenal and has supported anti-terrorist and humanitarian operations around the globe. The contract also includes aerial refueling system support for two Netherlands KDC-10 aircraft.

“We are excited to partner with the Air Force on the KC-10 CLS program and are committed to working with the Air Force to ensure the KC-10 is ready to support air mobility requirements anywhere, anytime, ” said Northrop Grumman chairman and chief executive officer Ronald Sugar. “This award further demonstrates Northrop Grumman’s important role as a premier provider of air mobility solutions.”
