SABCA servicing Belgian Air Force F-16s

A Belgian company has received another U.S. government contract for depot-level maintenance of U.S. Air Force F-16s in Europe.

The award to Societe Anonyme Belge de Constructions Aeronautiques from the U.S. government, Ogden Air Logistics Center, is an indefinite-delivery contract for 2012-16.

The contract was given at the end of a yearlong re-competition procedure.

SABCA is an engineering and manufacturing company that has participated in licensed production programs of combat aircraft and military helicopters for the Air Force and others. It is a prime or subcontractor for upgrade programs on F-16s, A-10s, Alpha Jets, Mirage and other aircraft types.

SABCA began working with F-16s more than 30 years ago, assembling and delivering new F-16 A/Cs to different end-users.
Since then, more than 1,150 F-16 A/Cs have been assembled, upgraded, inspected, repaired or repainted by the company.

The United States gave the company a seven-year indefinite-delivery contract for in-theater depot-level support to the Air Force Europe's F-16s in 2005.

The monetary value of the contract and other details weren't disclose
