Raytheon Aircraft Co., Wichita, Kans., is being awarded a $7,000,000 firm-fixed-price contract.

This action mitigates the gap in service; and interruption of these serves and deliverable would adversely impact current JPATS program operations. Interruptions in program support would result in the aircraft being “not mission capable” and therefore hinder student pilot training at both the U.S.Air Force and U.S. Navy user’s main operating bases.
