Air Force seeking contractor to modify Caravans for airdrop program

The Air Force is seeking a contractor to modify two Cessna Caravan 208 aircraft for airdrop operations.

The planes will be used to support an “Afghanistan C-208 Airdrop Program,” according to the Air Force’s Federal Business Opportunities website .

The government will provide two Caravans equipped with cargo hauling production features, such as a plywood floor, cargo barricade, nets and tie down straps for the air drop program.

The contractor will ferry the planes from Shindand, Afghanistan and modify them with roll-up doors, red and green jump and airdrop lights, cockpit control and status panels for the door and lights, roller floors, radar altimeters and other equipment.

Air Force Materiel Command at Wright Patterson Air Force Base is the office seeking the work.
