Solicitations began July 2004, negotiations were complete in July 2005, and work will begin 13 months after the exercising option and will refit 6 aircraft per month after that. The Headquarters Ogden Air Logistics Center at Hill Air Force Base, UT issued the contract (FA8202-05-C-0004/P00002). The A-10C Spiral 1 upgrades have been a great success to date.
