HBC Receives Follow-On Contract for Training in Iraq

Hawker Beechcraft Global Customer Support (GCS) has received a follow-on contract for training from the Air Force Security Assistance Training command as the Contract Logistic Support (CLS) provider for the ongoing Operation Peace Dragon maintenance and support program for the Iraqi Air Force’s fleet of Beechcraft King Air 350ER Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) aircraft.

Under terms of the contract, Hawker Beechcraft will send three additional technicians, along with two instructors, to New Al-Muthana Air Base in Baghdad, Iraq, to provide technical and logistical instruction to Iraqi Air Force maintenance personnel. “This training component is a logical step in the transition for Iraqi troops to assume responsibility for this important and ongoing mission,” said Christi Tannahill, HBC vice president, Global Customer Support. “Our goal is to effectively train the Iraqi Air Force personnel to develop the capability and confidence to maintain their aircraft.”
