FALLS CHURCH, Va. – (July 26, 2013) – DynCorp International’s (DI) DynAviation unit today announced that it is in the process of reconditioning, upgrading and modifying eight aircraft to enhance the Company’s future global operations and offering. The upgrade work on six UH-1 and two Mil Mi-17 helicopters that were previously used in various global locations, including the company’s operations in Afghanistan, is being done at DI facilities in Huntsville, Ala., and Pensacola, Fla.
Once complete, the newly-equipped helicopters – exceptionally safe, capable aircraft for cargo and passenger mobility services – will support the Company’s growing commercial and government aviation transport business. The UH-1 and Mil Mi-17 are the most highly proliferated rotary wing platforms in the world.
“The cost effective nature and reliable performance of these aircraft makes them ideally suited for supporting a number of DI’s strategic growth opportunities,” said Jim Myles, senior vice president, DynAviation. “We look forward to putting these aircraft to work and expanding the support we can offer our global customers.”
