TH-73A-Leonardo

AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corp. has been awarded a $159.4 million USD firm-fixed price modification from the U.S. Department of Defense to the previously awarded contract for the U.S. Navy’s Advanced Helicopter Training System. This modification exercises options for the production and delivery of 36 TH-73A helicopters Lot III and initial spares.

In January 2020 Leonardo, through AgustaWestland Philadelphia Corp., was awarded a firm-fixed-price contract valued at $176 million for the production and delivery of an initial 32 TH-73A helicopters, along with spares, support, dedicated equipment, and specific pilot and maintenance training services. In November 2020, the second lot of aircraft were ordered through a $171 million contract modification, an additional 36. The Lot III brings the total number of aircraft on order to 104. The total requirement is for 130 aircraft.

The TH-73A will be used to train the next generation of student aviators from the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard and is only made at Leonardo’s FAA-certified Part 21 Production Line in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
