The work at the companys Cecil Field facility will keep the aircraft modern and mission ready. It includes high flight-hour inspections, periodic maintenance inspections, in-service repair and modifications, upgrades and engineering.

Our mission is to support the Navys effort to improve readiness, said Boeing F/A-18 Sustainment program director, Travis McBurnett. Since 1999, the Boeing Cecil Field team has returned 880 modified or repaired F/A-18s to the Navy and Marines. We look forward to delivering many more in the coming years.
