DULLES, Va. and PARIS, June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire


The first 16 Afghan Air Force (AAF) students recently completed English-immersion training on a contract led by Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) to provide fixed- and rotary-wing pilot training for up to 80 Afghan airmen.


The students are now attending aviation ground school, the second phase of the four-part pilot training program. The $42.8 million, three-year training contract supports NATO Air Training Command-Afghanistan under the U.S. Army's Warfighter Field Operations Customer Support (FOCUS) contract.


"We have the right people with the right skills and talents to ensure we train individuals who are capable of transitioning Afghan's newest military service into self-sufficiency," said program manager Rick Glynn, of Raytheon Technical Services Company LLC. He leads the Warrior Training Alliance consortium of about 120 subcontractors for Warfighter FOCUS. The AAF training is being conducted by one of Raytheon's teammates in a Middle East nation.


The Raytheon-led Warfighter FOCUS team is in its fourth year of delivering live, virtual and constructive training solutions that leverage proven technologies, integrated logistics support and expert engineering services for U.S. and coalition forces at more than 600 manned and unmanned locations worldwide.
