The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] and Alenia Aermacchi, a company of Finmeccanica [SIFI.MI], today announced an agreement to jointly pursue the international trainer aircraft market.

Both companies will cooperate on marketing, sales, training and product support activities in international markets for the M-346 next-generation Advanced and Lead-in Fighter Trainer and the M-311 basic-advanced trainer designed and manufactured by Alenia Aermacchi.

Under the agreement, Boeing Integrated Defense Systems' Support Systems division will be responsible for several aspects of the program's logistics support and associated training.
