ST. LOUIS, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- The U.S. Air Force received a proposal from Boeing following its solicitation for a C-17 heavy-lift aircrew training support contract.

U.S. company Boeing announced its Training Systems & Services unit is leading a team that submitted its bid to receive a follow-on C-17 Training System contract from the Air Force.

Boeing has supported the Air Force C-17 heavy-lift military aircraft training program for almost two decades. Boeing says its team includes FlightSafety Services Corp., FlightSafety International, Delaware Resource Group, Safety Training Systems and CymSTAR.

"As the incumbent prime contractor for C-17 aircrew training, we have consistently delivered guaranteed students to the Air Force for nearly two decades," Mark McGraw, Boeing Training Systems and Services vice president, said in a statement.
