Busey receives international contract from Boeing

Delaware Resource Group of Oklahoma City has been awarded a contract to train flight crews from the United Arab Emirates.

The Busey Group company was hired by Boeing to start and maintain a C-17 training site. Recruiting and hiring of instructors has started. The contract is for three-and-a-half years and scheduled to start in June in the United Arab Emirates.

Delaware Resource Group has been a subcontractor to Boeing for the U.S. Air Force C-17 Aircrew Training System contract since 2005.

"This award is a huge step for our team, as we have now entered the international market," said Brian Busey, vice president of human resources and operations.

Phil Busey Sr., chairman and CEO of the Busey Group of Companies, said Delaware Resource Group won the contract because of its extensive experience and role with Boeing on other programs and the long-standing working relationship on multiple programs. In January of this year, Delaware won a $30 million training contract with the Air Force.
