and why wouldn't they?
In the UK they're seriously considering outsourcing all pilot training up to type conversion and gunnery training to a commercial company.
Pilots would be trained by them all the way from primary trainers into the Hawk (or whatever is going to replace it maybe).
A little maintenance work on some VIP transports and crew trainers seems insignificant in comparison...

As the C-40 is a relatively new aircraft in the military's inventory, the knowledge and experience with the airframe is limited, compared to that of the C-9 fleet. I'll be flying transcon on a C-9 or a C-40 this weekend, and I'll see what information I can gather, as to the depth of the maintenance that the USN/USAF outsource to DL.
