FlightSafety Wins Potential $363M Navy Helicopter Aircrew Training Support IDIQ

FlightSafety International's services business has won a potential $363.5M contract to train military aviation students on the U.S. Navy's TH-73A helicopter training system at Naval Air Station Whiting Field in Milton, Fla.

The company will provide flight training equipment and classroom instruction to help the branch produce at least 600 intermediate tiltrotor and advanced rotary-wing naval pilots annually, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

Naval Air Systems Command received two proposals for the indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract, which includes a base value of $220.7M over five years, via a competitive source-selection process.

NAVAIR noted that FlightSafety will supply 18 flight simulation training devices from the 2021 calendar year through 2026 as part of the IDIQ.

The branch intends to procure up to 130 TH-73A systems from Leonardo under a potential $648.1M contract awarded in January to replace the TH-57 Sea Ranger platform used to train student naval aviators.
