DI’s DynAviation Group
DI’s history in aviation began in 1946 when two WWII veterans launched California Eastern Airways, a cargo and passenger airline. In 1951, our predecessor company was among the first to deploy technical teams to the field to maintain aircraft under the USAF Contract Field Teams (CFT) program. Aviation remains at the core of DI’s business, with operations today in more than 100 locations worldwide.
The Company has stayed true to its roots with continued growth in aviation maintenance, and has expanded its capabilities and customers around the globe. DI’s DynAviation Group:
- Provides airfield and aircraft operations, logistics, security, construction, communications and training around the world.
- Maintains and staffs aircraft for the U.S. military, U.S. Department of State, other U.S. government customers, commercial aviation customers and U.S. allies, including specialized missions such as eradicating drug crops and combating forest fires.
- Supplies and maintains all types of ground support equipment and vehicles.
- Installs aircraft modification packages for more than 70 aircraft types and a broad range of weapons systems, and updates entire fleets to 21st century mission-ready status.
About the Army Association of America
The Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA) was formed in early 1957 by a small group of senior aviation officers in the active Army, the Reserve Forces of the U.S. Army and industry. Their mission is to support the United States Army Aviation soldiers and their families by providing networking, mentoring and professional development opportunities. They also recognize excellence through several award programs such as Soldier of the Year and Unit of the Year.
The AAAA Scholarship Foundation is another valuable resource provided, which awarded $427,000 in scholarship funds to 263 outstanding students thanks to generous donors.
