The U.S. Air Force is conducting industry surveys to identify potential companies capable of developing and providing Night Vision Goggle (NVG) training for the KC-46A Pegasus Aircrew Training System (ATS) at Altus Air Force Base, Oklahoma, says Aviation Today.
The initiative, scheduled this January through 2026, is outlined in a request for information issued by the Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. The primary objective of the Air Force Materiel Command's market research is to assess contractors' capabilities to deliver the necessary NVG training course development, operations, and sustainment of course material for the KC-46A ATS at Altus.
The existing contract for ATS was awarded to Flight Safety Services Corp. in 2013 under a 13-year fixed-price incentive, encompassing $78 million for engineering and manufacturing development. Flight Safety Services Corp. is now part of FSI Defense, a company within the FlightSafety International umbrella, owned by Berkshire Hathaway.
