Will Provide Helo Flight, Maintenance Training And Support
Aero-News learned Monday Boeing Australia Limited was recently
awarded a contract worth approximately AUD$110 million by the
Commonwealth of Australia to provide helicopter flight and
maintenance training as well as maintenance support services for
Australian Army pilots and ground technical staff.
The five-year Army Aviation Training and Training Support
(AATTS) contract consolidates several current contracts that
support the Army Aviation Training Center, located at Oakey Air
Base, Queensland. The contract has an option for five one-year
extensions and is scheduled to begin in mid-2007.
Boeing Australia Limited President David Withers said the
contract confirms the company's significant rotary wing
capabilities, which until now have been focused on providing
operational maintenance support for the Bell 206B-1 Kiowa training
fleet at the Army Helicopter School at Oakey.
"For the past 13 years, Boeing Australia has provided the
Australian Army with outstanding levels of aircraft availability
and has worked to continually improve service delivery," said
Withers. "This has positioned us well to execute the expanded scope
of work in the AATTS contract. Using the expertise of our industry
partners Australian Helicopters, CAE Pty Ltd and Ocean Software, we
will be able to provide the Army with a consolidated and
high-quality flying training service."
The training will use existing aircraft training systems,
including Bell 206B-1 Kiowa and S-70-A Blackhawk helicopters.
Boeing Australia also will provide maintenance support services and
crash response and loadmaster training helicopters.
