MCLEAN, Va. – (November 8, 2017) – DynCorp International (DI) has received a $103 million modification to an existing contract for maintenance services on T-34, T-44, and T-6 training aircraft.
The modification will include organizational, intermediate, and depot-level maintenance for 16 T-34 Mentors, 54 T-44 Pegasus and 287 T-6 Texan aircraft. The work will be performed at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi, Texas (50 percent); Naval Air Station Whiting Field, Florida (39 percent), Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida (8 percent), and other locations across the U.S. and is expected to run through September 2018.
“The team is excited to further support our customer,” said Jeremy Stanbridge, T-34/44/6 program director. “We look forward to taking good care of these aircraft another year.”
The Mentor, Pegasus and Texan II are light turboprop planes used by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps for basic flight training. Their simple design and relatively forgiving flight characteristics allow pilots to learn fundamentals before moving on the more sophisticated aircraft.
“We are happy to continue our partnership with the Navy on the T-34/44/6 program,” said Mark Mirelez, DI’s Aviation Engineering Logistics & Sustainment (AELS) business unit lead.
