PAE Gains Spot on $12.6B Navy Aviation Contract, John Heller Quoted

PAE obtained a position on a potential $12.6B U.S. Navy contract vehicle for military aircraft support services.

The company, based in Arlington, Va., said Tuesday it is one of 19 companies holding positions on the Contracted Maintenance, Modification, Aircrew and Related Services contract awarded in January.

“This is a large-scale, whole-platform support contract that constitutes the overwhelming majority of non-manufacturing aviation support for the Navy over the next 11 years,” said PAE CEO John Heller, a 2019 Wash100 winner.

Heller added the company seeks to invest in sustainable technology platforms and expand its capabilities to address customer demands through the CMMARS indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
