The $442 million contract includes a 12 month base period plus option years and is expected to be complete by 30 September 2026.

AECOM’s rotary wing flight training organisation provides classroom academic instruction and hands-on flight training. The company uses a variety of helicopters and flight simulation devices to instruct the US Army aviators during their initial entry rotary wing aviator training. It also instructs US Air Force helicopter pilots during the specialised undergraduate helicopter pilot training course.

Under the contract, AECOM will provide all personnel, supervision and other services necessary to perform on-going services for rotary wing flight training, flight training support and flight training service support.

Michael Burke, chairman and CEO, AECOM, said: ‘We are honoured to strengthen our relationship with the US Army by continuing to serve as its primary partner for rotary wing flight training.'
