An Amentum subsidiary has won a $301 million task order from the U.S. Air Force to perform maintenance and aid in flight routines on three training aircrafts.
The Aircraft Maintenance Enterprise Solution (ACES) multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract calls for the arm of Amentum, DynCorp International LLC, to carry out five years of repair and upkeep at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma, the contractor announced Tuesday.
Under ACES, Amentum’s responsibilities include all Organizational level (O-level), Intermediate level (L-level) and maintenance services for the T-1A Jayhawk, T-6A Texan II and T-38C Talon training aircrafts.
This is Amentum’s first task order under ACES, but the company has “a long legacy of support to the Air Force” that they are keen on continuing, according to President of Amentum Aviation Business Unit Joe Dunaway.
Most recently, in July 2021, Amentum received a contract from the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center to instill infrastructure, supporting tools and services for the USAF’s threat radar systems and combat training ranges.
The five-year IDIQ contract totals $950 million, if all options are exercised. The work will be performed at locations decided by Utah’s Hill Air Force Base.
DynCorp International was acquired by Amentum in 2021 and was highlighted in CEO John Vollmer’s LinkedIn retrospective about the company’s achievements during the calendar year, entitled “2021- A Year of Transformational Growth and Operational Excellence.”
