Kuwait is set to receive two tactical operational flight trainers (TOFTs) for the Boeing F/A-18E/F Block III Super Hornet multirole fighters that it has ordered, according to a notice released on the US Federal Business Opportunities website on 18 June.
The notice said Boeing will supply one legacy TOFT that has been modified for the Super Hornet and one new Super Hornet TOFT, as well as associated training aids, spares, and courseware. Boeing will also provide training for 26 pilots.
The first TOFT will be delivered to a location in the United States – probably Naval Air Station New Orleans - in the first quarter of 2021 to support initial aircrew training.
