SEA T-44 Government Contract Successfully Completed

t44_largeJanuary 2015 brings the completion of a successful two year SEA contract with the US Navy. Southeast Aerospace was able to assist with resolutions for parts obsolescence while still meeting the customer’s schedule. The Fleet Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE) in Jacksonville, Florida supports the Hawker Beechcraft T-44 trainer model aircraft in use by the U.S. Navy for naval multi-engine flight training.

The T-44 aircraft are currently undergoing an Avionics System Upgrade (ASU) requiring “A” and “P” modification kits. Southeast Aerospace was contracted to provide these kits. The final contract value exercised exceeded $16,466,000. The work was performed in Jacksonville, and all inventories, including GFE, have been delivered to the government.

Southeast Aerospace (SEA) was an ideal fit for this Navy contract due to our parts, technical, and logistics resources. As an emerging government contractor with a diverse offering of products and services, SEA is fortunate to be located in the Space Coast area where a healthy environment exists for aerospace companies. “SEA was honored to support the Navy T-44 program and contribute to the training of our next generation of naval aviators” says Rob Reed, Director of Aircraft Modification Programs.
