SEATTLE, WA (WCSC) - Boeing has won an $8 million Air Force contract to train multi-national C-17 aircrews at the company's International Training Center (ITC)  in the United Kingdom.

The Strategic Airlift Capability (SAC) program is made of ten NATO countries and two NATO Partnership for Peace countries.

The training will begin early this year. Before now, the SAC program sent aircrews to the United States for training.

Having regional training helps save cost and time, according to Larry Sisco, the C-17 training program manager.

The ITC houses a weapons systems trainer, loadmaster station and an integrated maintenance procedure trainer.
