CAE‘s U.S. subsidiary has landed a potential eight-year, $200M prime contract to provide training services to the U.S. Air Force‘s military transport aircraft crew.
The C-130H Aircrew Training System contract contains one base year, followed by seven option periods, and includes management of a training systems support center at Little Rock AF Base in Arkansas, the company said Wednesday.
CAE USA will also conduct classroom and simulator instruction, modify or update training devices, engineer systems and provide logistics support through as the ATS program’s prime contractor.
A three-month transition period for contract work is scheduled to commence Oct. 1.
“We have played a role on this program as a subcontractor for almost 20 years, and we are honored the Air Force has now placed its trust and confidence in CAE to lead the program that supports the preparation and readiness of C-130 aircrews for their critical missions,” said Ray Duquette, president and general manager at CAE USA.
