The U.S. Naval Air Systems Command has chosen to exercise DynCorp International’s third option year for an aircraft maintenance support contract at the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division at Patuxent River, Md.
“DI is proud to continue our important work supporting the U.S. Navy at Pax River, where we have had a presence for more than four decades,” said Jim Myles, DynCorp International senior vice president, DynAviation.
Under this contract, DI provides organizational level maintenance and logistics support for all Naval Test Wing Atlantic aircraft and support equipment. Aircraft includes all rotary, fixed, lighter-than-air, and unmanned aircraft on-site for project testing, as well as transient, loaner, leased and tested civilian aircraft assigned to the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division. DI team members will also provide supportability and safety studies, and off-site aircraft safety and spill containment patrols and aircraft recovery services.
The option year is valued at $101.9 million and is the third of four possible option years on the contract originally awarded in August 2011.
