Casals & Associates, a DynCorp International company, recently supported a group of young actors in El Salvador in putting together a play that raises awareness of social issues affecting Salvadoran youth. The Casals team partnered with the drama theatre ensemble, “Grupo Realista” (“True to Life Group”), who held their debut performance of “Restricted Access,” to nearly 200 students in their community.
Casals Democracy Strengthening Program (DSP) director, Carlos Guerrero, met the founding members of the group as they performed at a community fair.
“I couldn’t help but notice their enthusiasm,” said Guerrero. “Their passion for using performing arts to disseminate objectives that paralleled that of the DSP program made for an easy partnership.”
Guerrero worked with the group and proposed a small acting project, engaging a local theater director who would help develop ideas and talents with the actors. Read more →

Cribbins Aviation Product Symposium, November 6, 2014, in Huntsville, Ala. DI is being given this award for Contribution by a Major Contractor in recognition of DI’s outstanding addition to the materiel readiness and logistical support of U.S. Army Aviation.

The DynCorp International War Reserve Materiel (WRM) program has demonstrated its commitment to continuous improvement by implementing a new initiative aimed to drive down the cost per unit to produce, reduce overtime hours, improve throughput, increase safety and improve quality.
DI’s WRM team worked together to develop a Lean strategy to better support its customers, the U.S. Air Force Central Command (USAFCENT) and Acquisition Management Integration Center (AMIC). For example, the WRM team in Thumrait, Oman, recently completed five projects focusing on reducing the vehicle acceptance timeframe by half and redesigning a process flow for heater maintenance that reduced waste and resulted in a 60 percent reduction in labor hour consumption.

Each year, DynCorp International team members working in support of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) gather to recognize the efforts of their maintenance technician team.
Recently several DI pilots working at Columbia Air Attack Base nominated base mechanic, Michael Silva, for the Mechanic of the Year Award, awarded by DI and CAL FIRE program leadership.
“Mike’s work ethic and unmatched attention to detail are truly incredible. He spends hours every day inspecting, greasing, and fixing even the most minor items regardless if the temperatures are over 100 degrees in the middle of the afternoon. He just never seems to stop or run out of energy! It’s not an exaggeration to say he inspects our aircraft with a flashlight and a mirror, or is continually checking our planes as we hot-load, or spends late hours until he is absolutely satisfied it is perfect. His unwavering energy and constant care gives us the confidence to know we are flying an impeccably maintained and safe aircraft, so we can focus on the job,” said DynCorp International pilot, Rich Schlink.
