US Navy receives additional P-8A Poseidon aircraft

Posted on 05 November 2012 by admin

Boeing on Nov. 2 delivered the fifth production P-8A Poseidon aircraft to the U.S. Navy. The P-8A is one of 24 low-rate initial production (LRIP) maritime patrol aircraft that Boeing is building for the Navy as part of contracts awarded in 2011 and 2012.

 

“This is our final P-8A delivery of the year; we’ll ramp up to 12 deliveries, including P-8I aircraft for India, in 2013,” said Chuck Dabundo, Boeing vice president and P-8 program manager. “Our in-line production approach, which draws on processes developed on the company’s commercial and military programs, has been key to our ability to increase production rates while reducing costs.”

 

“As we transition to the P-8A and prepare for Initial Operational Capability in 2013, the U.S. Navy is successfully flying the first production planes at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla.,” said Capt. Aaron Rondeau, U.S. Navy P-8A Integrated Product Team lead.
