Lockheed-KAI Team Submits Final Bid for Air Force T-X Trainer Program - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries have submitted a final proposal for the U.S. Air Force's $16B T-X trainer aircraft contract, The Korea Times reported Thursday.

The Lockheed-KAI team intends to offer the T-50A jet trainer, which was unveiled in 2016, to succeed the service's T-38C plane.

The latest bid will possibly open more opportunities for the two companies to sell their offerings and secure foreign orders for the T-50A, according to the report.

The T-X program will also potentially boost KAI's global presence as it extends its operations in other countries, the report added.

The T-50A aircraft serves as the latest version of the T-50 supersonic jet, which KAI has deployed to several Asian nations such as the Philippines.

A BoeingSaab team will also compete in the T-X program with the BTX-1 aircraft.
