Leonardo has secured a potential five-year, $330 million contract from the U.K.’s ministry of defense to provide training and support services for 62 AW159 Wildcat helicopters of the British army and navy.

The company said Monday that work on the Wildcat Integrated Support and Training contract will begin April 1 and covers aircraft safety management, technical support, spares provisioning, synthetic and ground based training delivery for aircrew.

Thales will provide communication and aircraft management platforms while Morson will perform aircraft maintenance and support staff as subcontractors in the WIST program.
