Sierra Nevada is confident the facility in Jacksonville can be quickly set up based on Embraer’s recent work standing up a business jet manufacturing center in Fort Lauderdale. “That gave us great confidence that this is not new territory,” Gilbert says.
The contract also calls for Sierra Nevada to train U.S. trainers who will then train the Afghan forces. Gilbert says the training is slated to take place at the municipal Clovis air field in New Mexico.
