Boeing to Provide Apache Longbow Flight Simulator to Egypt
ST. LOUIS.- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] has been awarded a $20 million contract to provide an AH-64D Apache Longbow Crew Trainer (LCT) and Life Cycle Support to the Egyptian air force. The LCT, a full-mission, high fidelity flight simulator, provides training for Apache Longbow helicopter crews.
“We are committed to guaranteeing the readiness and safety of our customers,” said Tony Jones, Boeing vice president, Training Systems and Services. “The LCT is extremely successful in preparing our U.S. Apache Longbow crews, and we are excited to see that our international customers have recognized the value and capabilities of this proven device.”
Boeing is scheduled to deliver the LCT in July 2009. Designed to reduce recurring maintenance costs, the newly-improved LCT incorporates the latest architecture technologies and replaces aircraft components with simpler, PC-friendly software. The contract also includes two years of spares, operator and maintainer training, one year of contractor-logistics support and an option for an additional year of contractor-logistics support to be exercised at a later date.
