Raytheon Aircraft has selected FlightSafety Services to develop the ground-based training system (GBTS) for the US Air Force/Navy Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS). The company cites "superior systems engineering and software management" as reasons for selecting FlightSafety over Hughes Training for the $500 million contract. The GBTS is to be operational in 2001. Raytheon plans to deliver the first T-6 JPATS aircraft in November 1998.
