Cambridge International Systems Inc. has received a task order to provide maintenance, training and logistics services to U.S. Southern Command for the Colombian Regional Helicopter Training Center.
The company will work to maintain the OH-58 and TH-67 helicopter, standardize pilot instruction, train maintenance personnel and support airframe transition, Cambridge International Systems said Friday.
Cambridge is one of 15 companies that won positions on a potential nine-year, $975 million contract with the U.S. Air Force in February to assist in national security missions of U.S. and partner agencies.
Eric Garnier, a Cambridge senior vice president, said the company will support the RHTC and help the Colombian military build up its national helicopter maintenance, logistics and training capabilities.
Based in the Melgar Air Base in Colombia, the RHTC serves as the training center for Colombian military pilots as part of that country’s counter-narcotics program.
