Training Helicopters for Afghanistan from MD Begin Deliveries

Earlier this year the U.S. Army awarded MD Helicopters a contract to begin production of training helicopters for the Afghan military. The initial contract was for 6 aircraft but up to 54 could be purchased at a value of almost $200 million. The small aircraft would be used for initial pilot training. The Afghan military operates a mix of primarily Russian aircraft suited more to their experience.

The winning of this contract was quite a coup for MD Helicopters and its owner, Ms. Lynn Tilton, as it is the first major U.S. defense contract the company has had since she bought it in 2005.

The six initial aircraft were delivered this week several weeks ahead of schedule. At a ceremony at the company’s Mesa, AZ plant Army officials along with local and national government figures celebrated the acceptance of the systems.

The U.S. has managed the acquisition of weapons for the new Afghan government and military for almost ten years now. They have primarily focused on getting small arms and slowly building up more complex and heavier weapons. Rotary wing assets are key to the fighting in that country due to the roads and the spread out nature of the population. The U.S. and its allies have relied on a variety of their own and leased helicopters to conduct supply and support missions.

The U.S. has already procured several Mil-17 transport helicopters for use by the Afghans. This has raised some hackles in Congress who feel U.S. manufactured equipment should be the priority. The contract to MD Helicopters and one to Cessna for training fixed wing aircraft should mollify some of those critics.

As the U.S. begins its draw down from the area more investment will have to be made in systems like this to help the Afghans get ready to defend themselves. This is an opportunity for U.S. defense contractors to at least gain some of this work and help potentially offset any cuts due to the reductions in U.S. defense spending.

U.S. Aerospace, Inc. Chairman of the Board, Jerrold S. Pressman Issues Letter

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--U.S. Aerospace, Inc. (OTCBB: USAE), issues the following letter. Letter from the Chairman Dear Fellow Stakeholders: Our company is beginning an extraordinary transformation. In the last few months, we have gone from what some have called a “small, cash-strapped” defense subcontractor, to one of the most talked about companies in the aerospace industry, bidding on the largest defense contract in history: the KC-X Tanker Modernization Program. But this first bid is on

Congress Wants WTO Taken Into Account In KC-X Bidding

Kansas legislators in both the House and Senate are planning to introduce a bill that would require the Pentagon to take WTO rulings into account. The Department of Defense has maintained that in accordance with U.S. laws and regulations that those matters cannot be considered or punished in contract awards. If it did that would be a violation of the WTO itself.

The bill would allow price adjustments to be made in bids to reflect illegal subsidies rulings. The legislators, Senator Brownback (R-KS) and Congressman Tiahart (R-KS), claim it would be applicable to any defense contract but it is obviously targeted at EADS (EADS:P) and their KC-X bid. The legislators claim that without taking these subsidies into account the price of the A330 based tanker will be artificially low.

They would prefer the contract go to Boeing (BA) who would do substantial work in Kansas on their tanker program.

Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) Opposes Airbus

February 20, 2010 by · Comment
Filed under: Airbus, Boeing, EADS, KC-X, KC-X Tanker News, Syndicated Industry News 

Jason Lean, the Executive Director of the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) has sent a letter to the Tallahasee Democrat opposing the award of the KC-X contract to Airbus on the grounds that “taxpayers shouldn’t pay for foreign jobs.” The letter reads:

“Nearly all Americans know how dire the unemployment picture is today. Unfortunately, the recent job loss numbers show that even harder times are on the horizon (“Jobless rate inches higher statewide but drops slightly in Leon County,” news article, Jan. 23).

But what most Americans don’t know is that the Department of Defense is considering awarding to the Europeans a major defense contract that outsources an additional 50,000 jobs abroad.

Even worse, the European defense contractor in question — EADS/Airbus — is a pariah company that was just found by the World Trade Organization to have thieved tens of thousands of American jobs in an illegal subsidy scheme that allowed it to steal market share from the U.S. aerospace company, Boeing.

There may be controversy about whether we need another federal stimulus plan to create American jobs. But there should be no controversy over the view that American taxpayers should not fund a European jobs stimulus plan for an outlaw company.”
