The Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Specialized and Proven Aircraft Program (PMA- 226), Contracted Air Services (CAS), Marine Corp Air Station (MCAS) Cherry Point, NC announces its intent to procure, on a competitive basis, Fleet Fighter Jet Services.

The Fighter Jet program provides contractor owned and operated aircraft to the Department of the Navy (DoN) for Fleet Training and Exercise Support for a wide variety of airborne threat simulation capabilities to train shipboard and aircraft squadron weapon systems operators and aircrew on how to counter potential enemy Electronic Warfare (EW) and Electronic Attack (EA) operations in today’s Electronic Combat (EC) environment; and Acquisition Program Testing and Evaluation (T&E) Support. Aircraft performance requirements include Type III and Type IV aircraft in accordance with the draft PWS (Attachment 1). The Government is also considering including, as an option to this requirement, requirements for a Type IV aircraft with radar as a threshold (vs objective)).

Locations include multiple continental United States (CONUS) sites and possible foreign operating bases outside the continental United States (OCONUS).

The government anticipates award of a Single Award Indefinite-Delivery/Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) type contract. The planned period of performance is currently anticipated to be limited to a four-year, 364-day ordering period. The Government expects to make an award on or about the second quarter of FY20. This acquisition will be issued as a Draft Request for Proposal (RFP) on or about the third quarter of FY19. Please note this is an estimated posting time, and it is the responsibility of interested parties to monitor the Federal Business Opportunity (FedBizOpps) website for all subsequent postings. Appendices and other documents are still in development and the government may post draft versions as they become available.

Industry Day is a mechanism where potential offerors can gain more insight into NAVAIR’s proposed requirements. The Government will present a briefing, and an open forum will be held to address questions and answers.
