The US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) has awarded a task order to DynCorp International (DI) for the provision of aircraft maintenance and logistics support for aircraft allocated to the NAVAIR Warfare Center in Fallon, Nevada, US.

The $44.5m, firm-fixed-price task order has a one-year period of performance and the indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity contract vehicle comes with an overall potential value of $93.3m, alongside a five-year period of performance.

"This contract award continues to significantly expand our work with the navy."

DI International DynAviation senior vice-president James Myles said: "This contract award continues to significantly expand our work with the navy, building on another recent contract award to support T-34, T-44 and T-6 aircraft.

"Our DynAviation team is honoured to have the opportunity to serve the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center, and continue to develop a strong relationship with this customer."

DI will also provide organisational and selected intermediate and limited depot-level maintenance and logistics services for 44 aircraft, including the F/A-18A-F, EA-18G, MH-60S, F-16A/B and E-2 C.

The company has previously delivered operation and maintenance for communication suites integrated on military sealift command vessels, as part of a US Navy contract.

In 2009, DI was also contracted by the navy to provide support services for the Joint Special Operations Task Force in the Philippines.
