DynCorp International to Maintain Kuwaiti Apache Aircraft
The United States Army Aviation Missile Command (AMCOM) has awarded DynCorp International a contract to support the Kuwait Air Force (KAF) with a Maintenance Augmentation Team (MAT) for its Apache AH-64D aircraft fleet. The firm-fixed-price contract is valued at approximately $11.2 million for the first two years and will increase to more than $16 million if an option year is exercised to extend the contract through December 31, 2011.
DynCorp International will assist the KAF to achieve an operational rate of 75 percent for its Apache fleet. Responsibilities will include flight-test support, organizational and intermediate-level maintenance, quality-assurance support, application of engineering change modifications, aircraft reassembly, ground-support equipment operation and maintenance, program support, and sustainment of shop operations and procedures.
All work will be performed in Kuwait. DynCorp International currently maintains a fleet of F/A-18 aircraft for the Kuwait Air Force under contract with the United States Navy.
