L-3 wins $53M contract for helicopter logistics support

L-3 Communications Corp. has won a $53 million task order contract with the U.S. Navy for logistics services in support of the TH-57 aircraft fleet.

Under the contract, the company will provide repair and/or overhaul services of aircraft, engines and related components, the Defense Department said.

The TH-57 aircraft is a helicopter that is used to train naval aviators in the fundamentals of helicopter flight so that they can transition into operational fleet aircraft in the Navy, Marine Corps and selected international armed forces.


TH-57 helicopters are used for training naval aviators.

Work will take place at Naval Air Station Whiting Field, Fla., and is expected to be completed in June 2014.

Five bids were received for this contract.
