Sierra Nevada Lands $129M Air Force Contract to Build Light Attack Aircraft

Jeff Brody

Sierra Nevada Corp. will manufacture two light attack aircraft for the U.S. Air Force under a $128.9M contract that also covers associated support and sparing services.

The service branch will obligate $63M in fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2019 production funds at the time of award, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

SNC will perform work under the sole-source contract in Jacksonville, Fla., through Aug. 23, 2024.

DoD announced the award four months after the Air Force issued light attack aircraft solicitations to an SNC-Embraer team and Textron (NYSE: TXT).

The branch said in October it would buy two to three aircraft from each manufacturer as part of capacity-building and interoperability efforts with U.S. allies and partner nations.
