L3 Subsidiary Lands $79M Contract to Help Manage AETC Trainer Aircraft Base Supply

A subsidiary of L3 Technologies (NYSE: LLL) has secured a $79.4 million contract from the U.S. Air Force to manage and sustain the base supply of T-1A trainer aircraft for the Air Education and Training Command.

L3’s Vertex Aerospace business will support AETC’s fleet of 178 T-1A trainers under the firm-fixed-price contract, the Defense Department said Friday.

Work will occur through June 7, 2018 at four Air Force bases located in Texas, Mississippi and Oklahoma as well as at Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida.

The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center received three offers for the competitively solicited contract.

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) built the T-1A jet trainers to support advanced phase training of undergraduate pilots for the operation of airlift or tanker aircraft as well as navigator training for the U.S. and international military customers.
