The Air Force Test Center at Edwards Air Force Base in California needs a HU-16 Albatross, along with a qualified flight instructor, for the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School (USAF TPS). The Air Force announced the contract on Friday. The anticipated period of performance for the contract is Feb. 1, 2019 – Jan. 31,2024.
“The objective of this program is to provide test pilot training in a HU-16 Albatross for approximately 50 USAF TPS students and staff members during 2-4 deployments per year," the Air Force said.
The Air Force Test Pilot School is where the Air Force's top pilots, navigators, and engineers learn how to conduct flight tests and generate the data needed to carry out test missions. An HU-16 Albatross is sought to provide the unique experience of flying a historic, multi-engine, water-landing capable aircraft.
Deployments will be conducted at Edwards Air Force Base and typically occur in April and October.

Little Caesars Pizza, the third largest pizza chain, will open its first restaurant in the Republic of Singapore in January. The global pizza brand, which is currently operating in 23 countries and territories, is continuing the expansion of its international footprint with new restaurants in Southeast Asia.

Little Caesars Pizza has grown its international presence with franchisees in Latin America, the Middle East, Australia, Canada, the Caribbean, and Mexico.
Headquartered in Detroit, Mich., Little Caesars is the largest carryout-only pizza chain in the United States. The company was founded in 1959 as a single family-owned restaurant.
