"We are supremely proud to be trusted by Boeing and the U.S. Air Force to supply these mission critical products and vital training systems," said Raanan Horowitz, president and CEO of Elbit Systems of America. "Future pilots will greatly benefit from the revolutionary flight training capabilities featured in the T-X."
