The Navy requires the aircraft, which will be designated C-40A, to meet military airworthiness standards and directs the contractor to provide training for aircraft personnel as part of the firm-fixed-price contract.

Naval Air Systems Command received two bids for the firm-fixed-price contract and will obligate the full contract value at the time of award.

Contract work is scheduled to run through September 2021 in Illinois, Indiana, Oklahoma and Florida.
