MCLEAN, Va. (October 16, 2014) – DynCorp International (DI) today announced that it has been recognized by the Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA) with the Materiel Readiness Award for a Contribution by a Major Contractor. The award is presented to the major defense contractor that has made an outstanding contribution to the materiel readiness and logistic support of U.S. Army Aviation.
