    Fleet Readiness Center Western Pacific (FRC WESTPAC) received the first V-22 Osprey delivery from Japanese industrial partner, NIPPI Corporation, Sep. 19, since the aircraft was inducted by the company last year.

    NIPPI Corporation joined FRC WESTPAC’s new V-22 maintenance contract in 2021. They received their first induction in February 2022, following nine months of preparation to their facility.

    Brian Spradling, FRC WESTPAC V-22 Integrated Product Team Lead, called the sale a major milestone.

    “Now we have two contractors that have given quality aircraft back to the fight,” he said, “It’s a great enhancement to what we can provide to the fleet.”
