The U.S. Department of Defense announced it is awarding AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corp. a US$171 million modification to the previously awarded firm-fixed-price contract for the US Navy’s Advanced Helicopter Training System.
This modification exercises options for the production and delivery of an additional 36 TH-73A aircraft, with work expected to be completed in December 2022 in Philadelphia, PA.
