McDonnell Douglas Corp. has won a $421-million Air Force contract to design, build and operate an air crew training system for the C-17 transport, which is being developed by Douglas Aircraft in Long Beach. The C-17 Aircrew Training System will provide training for pilots, load masters and engine run technicians for three years, with options for up to 15 years. The first phase calls for nearly 300 people to work on development and manufacturing. The Air Force plans to acquire 210 C-17s by 2000; the first flight of the C-17 is scheduled for 1990.
