AEHF PhotoHow to Use This Site

Welcome to the new TRA website.  Are you new to this site? If you haven’t registered recently (after Oct 2015), you will need to register so that we can ensure that only valid members have access to our member database.  Not a TRA member?  Join on-line.

There’s a pretty good chance that when you retired, you said the same thing that many of us did: “I’ll miss the people.”   That doesn’t need to be the case! The TRA is your way to keep in touch with your fellow alumni.

Do you have a question about health care? Have you been on a trip recently? Heard a good joke? Want to share an interesting link? Are you a pilot or have other interesting hobbies? Go to our Member Forums and let your fellow members know.

Are you interested in finding other members with similar interests or who worked the same program as you did? You can do a Member Search  and find other members who have filled in the member profile.

Is there another retiree that you would like to contact but don’t have an email address? If he/she has registered on the website, you can message them through the website, and he/she will get your message along with an email. If your retiree has not registered on the website, you can write him/her an email and send it to TRA@tra-spacepark.org and we’ll forward it to them if we have an email address.

This site it intended to be interactive, so feel free to provide comments or vote in our Member Poll.

Do you want to read through old copies of the NNG? You can scan through archives that go back to 2004!. Or, see photos from past TRA events.

We do not have a way to contact people as they retire. If you know recent or long-time retirees who are not members of TRA, please let them know that our association exists and is working to keep our members in touch.

Northrop Grumman Statement on Boeing’s Protest of the Long-Range Strike Bomber Program


FALLS CHURCH, Va., Nov. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The following is a statement by Randy Belote, vice president of strategic communications for Northrop Grumman Corporation:

Northrop Grumman Corporation is disappointed that its former LRS-B competitors have decided to disrupt a program that is so vital to national security.

The U.S. Air Force conducted an exceptionally thorough and disciplined process with multiple layers of review. Their process took into full account the parties’ respective offerings and their relative capabilities to execute their offerings on schedule and on budget.

Northrop Grumman offered an approach that is inherently more affordable and based on demonstrated performance and capabilities. Our record stands in contrast to that of other manufacturers’ large aircraft programs of the last decade.

As the only company to ever design and build a stealth bomber, we offered the best solution for our nation’s security. We look forward to the GAO reaffirming the Defense Department’s decision so we can continue work on this critically vital program.
