WASHINGTON — Participants in the U.S. Air Force’s light-attack aircraft experiment are revving up training activities ahead of the beginning of the exercise next month at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico.

So far, two companies have disclosed that they are taking part in the experiment, which will help the Air Force decide whether to start an OA-X program of record. Textron is bringing its Scorpion jet and the AT-6 Wolverine turboprop, while Sierra Nevada Corporation and Embraer have partnered up to offer the A-29 Super Tucano.

Both companies are already on the ground at Holloman and are preparing for the experiment to start on July 31.
