Vertex Aerospace Secures $180M Navy T-45 Aircraft Support Contract Option

Jeff Brody

Vertex Aerospace has secured a one-year, $180.4M contract modification to perform logistics, maintenance and engineering work on the U.S. Navy's T-45 trainer aircraft.

The company will also provide associated tools, equipment, and indirect and direct materials to support flight, test and evaluation activities, the Department of Defense said Thursday.

The modification represents an exercised option under a $151.3M contract awarded in July 2014 to maintain T-45s at the organizational, intermediate and depot levels.

Investment firm American Industrial Partners completed its purchase of Vertex Aerospace in July 2018 from the now-former L3 Technologies through a $540M cash deal.
