DynCorp Wins Extension on Aircraft Maintenance Support Contract; Jim Myles Comments

DynCorpLogoDynCorp International has been awarded a fourth contract option to provide aircraft maintenance services for a U.S. Air Force pilot training program in Wichita Falls, Texas.

The company received the contract under an aircraft maintenance support agreement to resume work for the 80th Flying Training Wing located at Sheppard Air Force Base, DynCorp said Wednesday.

The contract’s potential value is $184.9 million over nearly seven years, if all remaining options are exercised.

“We are proud to continue working with the U.S. Air Force to support the world’s only multi-nationally-manned and managed flying training program,” said Jim Myles, senior vice president at DynAviation.

“We are committed to keeping these aircraft ready for the next generation’s pilots,” Myles added.

DynCorp was awarded the original contract in 2009, which covered an 11-month base term and six separate one-year options.

The 80th Flying Training Wing of the Air Education and Training Command trains undergraduate fighter pilots as part of the Euro North Atlantic Treaty Organization Joint Jet Pilot Training initiative for U.S. and NATO air forces.
