Bell-Boeing awarded V-22 multi-year

Bell-Boeing is being awarded a $4.89 billion contract modification to “definitize” a multi-year production contract for the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor, the Pentagon announced 12 June.

The contract covers the manufacture and delivery of 92 MV-22 Ospreys for the US Marine Corps and seven CV-22 special operations aircraft for the US Air Force. But, moreover, it “definitizes” a previously “undefinitized” contact to build Lot 17 production aircraft and solidifies plans for the advance acquisitions of long lead items for the eighteenth production lot of Ospreys. According to the Pentagon release, the work will be completed in September 2019.

Boeing had said earlier that it was expecting to sign the multi-year contract for the V-22 on 13 June, which had been delayed to due budgetary squabbles within the US government. Company officials could not immediately comment on the contract award, but say they will make a statement on 13 June. 5517548638_d09d6ea6eb_oV2.jpg
