Boeing to Provide Navy F-18 Test Program Sets

Boeing Co. won a $7,189,237 Navy delivery to produce operational test program sets for fighter jets, the Defense Department announced Friday.

The Seattle-based aerospace company will provide the sets for F/A-18E/F aircraft.

The company will also support equipment spares for the Australian air force under the foreign military sales program.

Work under the firm-fixed-price delivery order will occur in St. Louis.

The Pentagon expects work to finish in November 2013.

The Naval Air Warfare Center’s Aircraft Division in Lakehurst, N.J. is the contracting activity.

The company recently landed an $11 billion foreign military sale, where Saudi Arabia will purchase 84 F-15 jets and associated accessories.
