WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A unit of Beechcraft Corp. says production will begin this month in Wichita on 35 training aircraft for the military.

Beechcraft Defense Co. on Monday announced the signing of a $210 million contract with the Air Force, under the government's Joint Primary Aircraft Training System procurement contract.

The contract includes 33 T-6 aircraft for the Navy and two for the Army. It also has an option for two more of the planes.

Beechcraft Defense said the latest contract is the 19th order for T-6 training planes from the military since the joint procurement program began in the late 1990s.
