The US Air Force (USAF) has delayed its estimated contract award date for its T-X trainer programme to July, an industry source told Jane’s.
The source said the USAF, in its original request for proposal (RFP), had anticipated a contract award by the end of 2017. However, the service tucked into its latest RFP notification its new expected contract award date.
USAF spokesperson Captain Emily Grabowski on 1 December declined comment, citing source selection.
