Four T-6A Military Trainer Aircraft Delivered to Iraqi Air Force

Hawker Beechcraft Corporation (HBC) today announced it has delivered the first four Beechcraft T-6A military trainer aircraft to the Iraqi Air Force. HBC was awarded a contract for eight T-6A trainer aircraft in August 2009 and an additional seven in September, bringing the contract total to 15 aircraft. The contract represents a government-to-government agreement between Iraq and the United States. The remaining aircraft deliveries will occur in the first and fourth quarters of 2010.

“With the T-6A, the Iraqi Air Force now has the most successful primary trainer in the world at its fingertips,” said Jim Maslowski, president, U.S. and International Government Business. “These aircraft will play a vital role in strengthening the Iraqi Air Force and providing training in support of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.” .......................Defense-Aerospace
