George Krivo: DynCorp Works With Air Force to Address Readiness Shortfall

George Krivo

George Krivo, CEO of DynCorp International, told Defense One in an interview published Thursday about the company’s efforts to help the U.S. Air Force address readiness shortfall.

“We’re working with [Air Education and Training Command] to come up with a way that we think contractors can augment the U.S. Air Force pilot training capability, undergraduate pilot training capability, because that’s not something that inherently has to be governmental,” Krivo said.

“We can hire retired pilots, test pilots and provide all the bases and training areas everything else along with the Air Force to help augment that.”

He cited the demand of military branches for maintenance logistics services during peacetime and the increase in services scope when tensions arise.

Krivo said he expects the company to record a 25 percent growth in profit this year driven by programs won in 2017 and clients’ obligation authority.

He added that there will be a lot of consolidation in the defense services sector in the next 12 to 24 months as companies work to increase their scale and expand their global footprint.
