The Air Force has denied Hawker Beechcraft’s request to review on why the aviation company was excluded from the Light Air Support bidding process.
Hawker learned that the company was no longer in contention for project last week. The Wichita-based company asked the Government Accountability Office to review the decision, citing concerns over why the Beechcraft AT-6 was excluded from competition.
“HBC's exclusion from competing for this important contract appears at this point to have been made without basis in process or fact,” the company said in a statement.
The Air Force was looking for a (LAS) fleet to train Afghan pilots. The military brand also planned on using some planes to provide air and ground support to American troops.
A final decision on the program is expected early next year.
