DynCorp International recently supported the U.S. Department of State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, Office of Aviation (INL/A) and Air Tractor with the application of enhanced safety features to aircraft specially-equipped for the high-risk missions this Program executes.
“These aircraft engage in specialized missions with unique needs, so the DI, INL/A and Air Tractor teams worked together to quickly upgrade the AT-802s to provide superior protection for those who rely on them to fly the mission,” said Joe Dunaway, DynCorp International vice president, Air Operations. “It truly was a huge success.”
Recently Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, William Brownfield, visited the Air Tractor facility in Olney, Texas, to examine the new safety upgrades. He commended the teams’ collective efforts.
“We asked you for a miracle, and we said please deliver that miracle in about two or three months’ time and the answer was yes,” said Brownfield.
