Boeing has received a U.S. Navy order worth $55.4 million to build hardware for training South Korean aircrew on the P-8A maritime patrol aircraft.
The defense contractor will develop the P-8A training systems that will be delivered to South Korea at its facilities in St. Louis, Missouri, and Tampa, Florida, until July 2025, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.
