Boeing has received a two-year, $18.7 million contract from the United Arab Emirates  to provide C-17 Globemaster III logistics support and training simulator maintenance.

Boeing, which originally manufactured the C-17, will support the UAE’s inventory of realistic, motion-based training devices used to train aircrews and support personnel for the country’s fleet of airlifters.

Boeing originally designed and delivered the simulators and has previously supported C-17 training for the UAE. This most recent award is the first standalone prime contract for Boeing to perform this work.

“With this new UAE contract, Boeing will continue training the Emirati C-17 students through each phase of their careers,” Larry Sisco, Boeing's C-17 training program manager, said.

In addition to the UAE, Boeing provides C-17 training to India, the United Kingdom and NATO’s Strategic Airlift Capability, officials said.
