How good is the Indian Air Force’s Request for Proposals (RFP) for the supply of 126 new fighters to meet the medium multi-role combat aircraft requirement? After all, the Indians have never previously handled such a high-value defense procurement in this manner. During the Dubai Air Show, two of the six industry contenders told AIN that they were impressed with the document, which runs to more than 200 pages.
Two airports seeking general aviation facilities have issued requests for proposals (RFPs). Bids are due March 19 on an RFP to construct and manage an FBO and GA hangars at Livermore Municipal Airport, Calif. Bids must be submitted by March 9 to an RFP for an FBO, maintenance facility, charter operation or corporate flight department to occupy a 95,000-sq-ft hangar and office under construction at Asheville Regional Airport, N.C.
Bids are invited from “qualified persons or firms” to design, develop and operate a new FBO facility at Boston Logan International Airport, which is currently served by Signature Flight Support. As part of its request for proposals (RFP), the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) will host a pre-submission conference and site tour on February 10 where copies of the draft lease and operating agreements will be available.
