AFSS Contract Option Offered To Lockheed Martin

Company Will Continue To Provides Nationwide Flight Planning Services Under FAA Supervision

The FAA has offered a $356 million, three-year contract option to Lockheed Martin to continue to provide AFSS services to the GA community under the Automated Flight Service Stations (AFSS) contract. The option will begin on October 1, 2010.

"Lockheed Martin is proud of the service its flight service specialists provide to the general aviation industry," said Jim Derr, Lockheed Martin Flight Service Program Director. "We are excited to have the opportunity to continue providing the most accurate and reliable flight service briefings available."

Under the AFSS contract, which was initially awarded in 2005, Lockheed Martin has employed technology enhancements and a hub system that has modernized flight services. Flight planning is now streamlined and allows the sharing of weather and flight plan statuses across the entire Lockheed Martin AFSS network. With continued FAA oversight, Lockheed Martin will maintain flight services delivery for CONUS, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico according to the Agency's strict safety and service requirements.
