The U.S. Air Force has awarded a $34 million order for three new CV-22 trainers and a device upgrade to the V-22 program team of Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) and Textron (NYSE: TXT) subsidiary Bell Helicopter.

The team will upgrade a CV-22 cabin part task trainer and two fuselage aircrew and maintenance trainers at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M. to create a cabin operational flight trainer.

It will also deliver a new wing part task trainer to Kirtland and provide the Hurlburt Field, Fla. and Cannon Air Force Base, N.M. with two new COFTS.

“The new COFTs will be made from the first CV-22 test flight vehicles, ” said Mark McGraw, Boeing vice president for training systems and services. “They and the upgraded CPTT include enhancements to provide high-fidelity training in nearly two dozen tasks.”
