Mark McGraw, Boeing Target Int’l Military Trainer Markets

Boeing has won $56 million from the U.S. Navy to maintain aircrew training systems as the company aims to expand into the international military trainer maintenance market.

The company said the five-year contract began Dec. 1.

“This addition to our portfolio is strategically important as we bolster our maritime patrol trainer maintenance business, especially internationally,” said Mark McGraw, vice president for training systems and government services.

Work will occur at Kadena Air Force Base, Japan; Naval Air Station Jacksonville; Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii; and NAS Whidbey Island, Wash.

P-3C, EP-3, P-8A, EA-6B, EA-18G and SH-60B training devices are covered under the contract.

Additionally, the company is delivering training systems for the P-8A Poseidon Plane to NAS Jacksonville next year.
