On 24 Dec 2011, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia signed a $29.4B agreement with the U.S. Government to purchase 84 new Boeing F-15 fighters, to modernize 70 existing Saudi aircraft, and to provide munitions, spare parts, training, maintenance, and logistics. The foundation for the success of this foreign military sale is English language training for Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF) personnel.
Over a contracted period of time starting in 2011, approximately 5500 RSAF cadets are projected to receive English language training (ELT) in support of this purchase (known as the F-15SA Fleet Modernization Program). These cadets must learn English in a timely manner in order to support follow-on training at USAF technical training locations across AETC.
