Aviall to lead Bronco II supply chain on behalf of Paramount Group

Aviall, a subsidiary of Boeing, has announced that it will lead supply chain management during production of the Advanced High-Performance Reconnaissance Light Aircraft or AHRLAC, developed by Paramount Group.

Aviall will now work to support supply chain procurement procedures and management processes across all AHRLAC production, which includes the aircraft’s two military variants – Mwari internationally and Bronco II in the United States. In addition, the aircraft specialist will secure and scale Bronco II production in the US to meet the nation’s acquisition requirements.

Boeing Global Services will also provide software-based solutions that allow for the centralised command and control of flight operations and enable total lifecycle support with reduced sustainment costs.

“This industry partnership provides not only a specialized aircraft that meets the US customer’s unique mission needs but does so at a fraction of the procurement and lifecycle cost of aircraft with similar mission applications and capabilities,” commented Eric Strafel, Aviall President and CEO.

Bronco II is a two-crew precision-strike and C4ISR (Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance) aircraft. It is capable of carrying a wide range of weapons, sensors and systems simultaneously in extended airborne operations, and its open system architecture allows for the rapid incorporation and employment of current and emerging systems.

“The strengthening of our relationship with Boeing Global Services is a key milestone in the introduction of Bronco II into the US market,” added Ivor Ichikowitz, Paramount Group Chairman.

“Aviall will help the program scale rapidly in production, as well as help reduce operating costs to the lowest levels ever experienced in an aircraft of this type. Our collaboration with Boeing leverages the strong and diverse design and mission capabilities of both companies to produce and sustain an aircraft for the US and other NATO markets.”
