C2 Technologies will support training programs and systems for the U.S. Air Force‘s C-17 transport aircraft as part of a potential 6.5-year, $986M contract the service branch awarded to Boeing, the Washington Business Journal reported Friday.
The report said C2 could receive at least $100M as a subcontractor on the project and plans to help the service branch teach pilots how to operate C-17 using technology.
The Vienna, Va-based company will also work with Boeing’s global services team to manage simulators installed at 16 air bases nationwide.
Curtis Cox, co-founder and president of C2, told WBJ in an interview the firm looks to hire 100 employees over a six-week period to support the project, including technicians, instructional designers and computer programmers.
He added the government expects engineering change proposals to increase the size of the industry team’s contract.
C2’s aviation support services group also develops courseware and holds training sessions for the operation and maintenance of six other aircraft weapon systems.
