“The purpose of the event is to provide information on the U.S. Air Force Academy Contractor Logistics Support (CLS) program, inform industry of program requirements, and address acquisition timelines,” the Air Force said in contract documents released Friday.

The CLS contract will support U.S. Air Force-owned aircraft located at the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA). Three squadrons require support for training aircraft: the 94th Flying Training Squadron, 98th Flying Training Squadron (98 FTS) and 557th Flying Training Squadron. All of these squadrons are assigned to the 306th Flying Training Group (306 FTG). The 98 FTS aircraft are currently located at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado but are simultaneously operated and maintained at Peterson and the USAFA.

Under the CLS contract, a contractor workforce will provide maintenance, management, scheduling, supplies and services for the USAFA aircraft fleet (see slideshow images).
