The Army Aviation Association of America will present the Materiel Readiness Award to DynCorp International during the Joseph P. Cribbins Aviation Product Symposium, November 6, 2014, in Huntsville, Ala. DI is being given this award for Contribution by a Major Contractor in recognition of DI’s outstanding addition to the materiel readiness and logistical support of U.S. Army Aviation.
DynAviation senior vice president James Myles is humbled by the award designation since DI takes its support of the U.S. Army very seriously. “We have provided full-spectrum aerospace, aviation and air operations solutions worldwide for decades and the Army Field Maintenance Division is one of our key programs,” said Myles. “Our team members take pride in providing high-quality logistical, direct organizational, intermediate and limited depot-level maintenance, maintenance operations and administrative support wherever required.”
This is the second time in 2014 DI has received an award of this nature. In February, the Army Aviation Association of America Tennessee Valley Chapter presented DI an Aviation Field Maintenance Directorate award during the Joseph P. Cribbins Symposium.
DI is the primary service provider for the Army Field Maintenance Division on the Aviation Field Maintenance contract vehicles. The Maintenance Division supports roughly three quarters of the U.S. Army’s helicopter fleet.
