BAE Systems

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla., 14 Dec. 2012. BAE Systems won a U.S. Navy contract, valued at approximately $400 million over five years, to maintain and service T-34, T-44, and T-6 trainer aircraft.

BAE Systems personnel will perform scheduled inspections, make required repairs and modifications, and provide logistical support for more than 300 aircraft operated by the Chief of Naval Air Training. The aircraft variants involved are the single-engine T-34, the twin-engine T-44A and T-44C, and the single-engine T-6A and T-6B.

“This win strengthens our position in the aviation services market and creates opportunities for additional organic growth,” says Dave Herr, president of BAE Systems Support Solutions.

Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), based at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md., awarded the contract. Work will be performed at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi in Texas and Naval Air Station Pensacola and Naval Air Station Whiting Field, both in Florida. BAE Systems will be actively recruiting from the existing skilled workforce at each site to fill maintenance positions.

“This is a major win for our team, significantly expanding our support to the U.S. Navy for trainer aircraft,” says Gordon Eldridge, vice president and general manager of Aerospace Solutions at BAE Systems.

The BAE Systems team includes support subcontractors Elbit Systems of America’s subsidiary M7 Aerospace LLC, PKL Services Inc., Hawker Beechcraft, StandardAero, and Sensenich Propeller Service.

The contract includes an initial base term plus multiple options. The period of performance will be five years if all options are exercised.
