L3 wins $120M contract to train Air Force B-2 pilots

L3 Technologies has been awarded a $120 million contract to continue training U.S. Air Force B-2 pilots, maintainers and weapons-loading personnel using its B-2 Aircrew Training System. L3 has been the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and provider of the training system since 1984.

As the OEM with two previous B-2 pilot training contracts, L3 has been the sole source for delivering B-2 aircrew and maintenance training system modifications to fulfill pilot training requirements and to train and certify weapons-loading crew members. Training is conducted at the 509th Bomb Wing, Whiteman Air Force Base, in Missouri. In addition, the L3 Training Systems Support Center (TSSC) located at Whiteman Air Force Base provides on-site engineering support.
