The U.S. Navy has awarded Boeing a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) contract, valued at US$109 million, to provide P-8A Poseidon training for the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF). A suite of training systems and course-ware will prepare RNZAF aircrew and maintainers to safely and effectively operate and maintain the maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft for decades to come.
Boeing’s holistic P-8 training system will enable the RNZAF to conduct up to 70% of all Poseidon-related training in a simulated environment. Boeing’s Electronic Classroom will give RNZAF instructors and students access to course-ware and testing capabilities. Boeing also will provide initial Instructor Cadre Training to a group of RNZAF instructors, enabling them to continue training additional RNZAF P-8A instructors and aircrews following delivery of the training system in early 2024.Email Post to a Friend
