Wildara is pleased to announce that it has been awarded contract by Jacobs Technologies to provide Project and Construction Management services for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF / F-35A) Division Integrated Service Contract, by supplying a Maintenance, Repair, Overhaul and Upgrade (MRO&U) Airframe Support Officer to support the Airframe MRO&U stand-up.
The Australian F-35A Project, also known as AIR6000 Phase 2A/2B, is introducing a fifth-generation air combat capability to meet Australia’s air combat needs beyond 2030. Australia’s F-35A will fulfil the functions of air dominance and strike capability currently provided by F/A-18A/B Hornets.
Wildara has previously provided project management and contract administration support services to Jacobs in PNG-Manus Island, RAAF Williamtown and RAAF Amberley, and looks forward to building upon our existing relationship with Jacobs and Defence in support of the strategic JSF project.
Wildara will commence support of the Project from November 2017 through until the first two aircraft arrive in December 2018, providing an important opportunity to support our objectives in being a quality supplier of Defence infrastructure services.
