The training pipeline will allow the Iraqi Air Force to tailor pilot training for several U.S.origin operational aircraft. The C–172s and T–6s are Iraq’s training platforms for their mobility and fighter attack fleets. The C–208s are Iraq’s platform of choice for training its Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) pilots. The proposed sale of training and support services will improve the Iraq’s ability to train its pilots and maintenance technicians. By training its own pilots and maintenance technicians in-country, Iraq will decrease its overseas training requirements, significantly reduce its training costs, and will enhance its ability to take over the sustainment of its aircraft. Iraq will have no difficulty absorbing this support. In addition to its primary mission—pilot and maintenance training for Iraqi Air Force personnel— this proposed sale includes Contractor Logistical Support costs for the trainer aircraft, as well as possible future construction and base operation support costs. The proposed sale of this training and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region. The principal contractor is Spartan College, Tulsa, OK.
