LUCAS AEROSPACE WINS MAINTENANCE CONTRACT FOR F/A-18 HORNET GEARBOXES
 SINGAPORE, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucas Aerospace has been awarded the contract for Depot Level Maintenance of the Royal Australian Air Force's F/A-18 Hornet Airframe Mounted Accessory Drive Gearboxes (AMADs). The contract was won by the Australian operations facility in Sydney, part of the worldwide Lucas Aerospace Customer Support Division.
 The F/A-18 Hornet aircraft carry two AMADs, which are high speed, high technology accessory drive units originally designed by the Flight Control and Actuation Systems Division. The contract's initial term is for five years but it is expected to be extended for 20 years, the estimated life of the aircraft.
 This latest achievement adds to a list which now totals 17 different F/A-18 Hornet components which the Customer Support Division in Australia has contracts to support. These range from main and afterburner fuel pumps and controls through engine variable exhaust nozzle actuators to power level controls. This capability is now available to other operators of the equipment in the Asia-Pacific region.
 Lucas Aerospace is a leading supplier of aerospace systems and equipment with annual sales of $1.3 billion (750 million pounds Sterling) and operating facilities across Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America, as well as associated companies, joint ventures, marketing and customer support facilities around the world. The company is part of Lucas Industries plc. -- an international organization serving the aerospace, automotive and other selected markets, with sales of $4 billion (2.4 billion pounds Sterling).
