Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has won a US$240 million IDIQ contract to manufacture the wings for the T-38 jet trainers used by the US Air Force. IAI has been producing T-38 wings generating strong customer satisfaction since 2011.
In service with the US Air Force since the 1960s, the T-38 jet trainers required the replacement of the wings to remain operational for the next several years. The wings will be manufactured by IAI’s LAHAV Aero-Strucrues line of business which is part of the Aviation Group in LOD, Israel.
“Winning the new contract is further validation of the trust and appreciation the US Air Force has for IAI’s Aero-Structures,” said IAI EVP and General Manager of IAI’s Aviation Group, Yossi Melamed. “IAI is a center of excellence in the manufacturing of wings for the F-16, F-35, and T-38.”
IAI has established a significant presence in the US aerospace and defense markets and has a large supply chain in 44 US states.
