ARLINGTON, Va. July 26, 2016 - PAE has been chosen to support the U.S Navy Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) F-5 Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) contract to provide maintenance and logistics support services for forty-four F-5 aircraft at Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon, Nevada; Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Yuma, Arizona; and NAS Key West, Florida. Following the cancellation of a stop work order for the original award, PAE continued with contract transition performance on May 25, 2016 and will continue to cover a period of performance of just over four years if all the options are exercised.
Under the F-5 CLS contract, PAE will support the organizational, selected intermediate, and limited depot-level maintenance and logistics service requirements for aircraft type-model-series (T/M/S) F·5F and F·5N at NAS Fallon, MCAS Yuma, and NAS Key West, respectively. The contract supports the newly expanded Specialized and Proven Aircraft Program Office (PMA-226) which encompasses aircraft in the Adversary program, U.S. Naval Test Pilot School, the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School and out-of-inventory Foreign Military Sales (FMS) aircraft.
"PAE has provided support to the essential aviation missions of Navy and Marine Corps for nearly 15 years, and we are excited to broaden that relationship with the addition of three new locations as well as FMS opportunities," said PAE CEO John Heller. "With this contract, PAE has also expanded the mission-focus of its aircraft services portfolio, by supporting aircraft maintenance for the training of Navy and Marine Corps aircrews and simulating the capabilities of adversary fighter aircraft operating in today's theater."
