ASI received a contract to modify forty-five (45) T-34C flight trainers located at NAS Whiting Field, NAS Pensacola, and NAS Corpus Christi.

The upgrade to the thirty-one (31) T-34C trainers (Devices 2B37, 2B37A, 2B37B, and 2C42) included addition of a simulated Global Positioning System (GPS) and VHF radio selector.

ASI also received a contract from NAVSURWARCEN to complete the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) for four (4) of the T-34C trainers (Device 2B37B) started by another contractor who did not perform to the standards the government knew ASI could.


This involved completing Control Loading modifications and installing new and refurbished cockpit panels in the four (4) trainers.

ASI completed the SLEP of two of the trainers quickly. As the result of a contract modification, one of the remaining trainers was shipped to ASI’s facility so that ASI could dramatically improve the aerodynamic flying qualities and correct all discrepancies remaining from the previous contract. 

The contract was also modified to include rehosting all eight 2B37B trainers to a PC-based computer system.
