Through the Contract Field Teams (CFT) program, a United States Air Force indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract vehicle, DynCorp International provides aircraft maintenance support at Royal Air Force Station Lakenheath in the United Kingdom.
In this program, DI team members support three aircraft fighter squadrons consisting F-15C, F-15D and F-15E model aircraft used in a variety of missions. This particular CFT site has been a part of the U.S. Air Force Europe USAFE theatre since 1996 and provides on-and off-equipment maintenance repairs, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, inspections and time compliance technical orders (TCTO). Time change items (TCIs), one-time inspections (OTIs), and assistance on the hourly periodic inspection (HPO) on aircraft and associated support equipment. Support services include all depot level repairs, greatly impacting mission readiness.
DI was awarded this CFT task order in September 2012.
DynCorp International and the CFT Program
The CFT program is open to any military branch and provides temporary and long-term support for aircraft technical service. DI is the only company to have held the CFT contract continuously since its inception in 1951 – one of the longest continuous incumbencies in government contracting. DI’s team members provide maintenance, modification, repair, and logistics support for aircraft, weapons systems, and ground support equipment worldwide on a quick-reaction, short- or long-duration basis.
Administered by the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center at Tinker Air Force Base, all branches of the military as well as some civilian agencies are eligible to use the contract. DI is one of seven large contractors that competes for task orders.
DI’s CFT program is ISO 9001:2000 registered and includes modification and organizational, intermediate, and limited depot-level maintenance and major overhaul of airframes, engines, transmissions, avionics, radio, electrical, and hydraulic components on all types of military aircraft and equipment. Services also include management, logistics support, procurement, human resources, training and automated data-processing at sites worldwide. Operations support includes production control and overhaul and rebuilding of parts, subassemblies, assemblies, and end items, as well as supply and transportation.
