FlightSafety International has been awarded a Bell TH-57 Aircrew Training Services contract, as well as a Boeing C-17 Aircraft Training System contract.
FlightSafety will be the prime contract for the TH-57 program to provide the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and some international students flight training. The company will deliver instruction and contractor logistics support and manage the replacement of the current training devices, according to a company release.
The systems include level-6 and level-7 flighting training devices, image generators, visual databases and projectors scheduled to enter service in February 2019.
