MCLEAN, Va. – (November 27, 2018) – The Naval Air Systems Command has awarded DynCorp International (DI) a $152 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide logistics support services and material for the maintenance of TH-57 aircraft. The contract has a two-year base period and two option years.

DI will provide organizational (O-level), intermediate (I-level), and depot level (D-level) maintenance for the U.S. Navy TH-57 helicopters. The O- and I- level maintenance work will be performed at Naval Air Station Whiting Field in Florida, and D-level maintenance work will be performed at DI’s Andalusia, Alabama facility.

DI plans to perform the work at the South Alabama Regional Airport (SARA) in Covington County, Alabama. The Airport is supported by Covington County and the cities of Andalusia and Opp.

Local officials were very excited about the announcement and DI becoming part of the community.
