Triumph Group, Inc. (NYSE:TGI) announced today that it will
provide Airframe Mounted Accessory Drives (AMAD) and hydraulic systems
to Saab for the Boeing T-X advanced pilot training jet. Saab, Boeing's
partner for the T-X program, responsible for the aft fuselage and the
associated subsystems, named Triumph as the supplier to design, develop,
manufacture, and provide aftermarket support for the AMAD and hydraulic

The announcement follows the selection of Boeing T-X as the new U.S. Air
Force advanced pilot training system, replacing the fleet of the aging

"We look forward to delivering these systems for the T-X program that
will provide U.S. Air Force pilots in training with the latest equipment
to support missions that protect freedom and democracy," said Frank
Dubey, Executive Vice President, Triumph Integrated Systems.

provide the AMADs, which features the company's aircraft accessory
gearbox product line. Its Actuation & Control operating company will

supplying similar hydraulic equipment for other aircraft programs.
