In DynCorp International’s Aviation business area, DI team members perform depot-level maintenance on aircraft support equipment. From equipment that moves aircraft, equipment that starts aircraft, equipment to recover an aircraft to equipment to test aircraft, DI runs the gamut on aviation maintenance for military aircraft.
Tony Garcia, Site Manager, U.S. Navy Support Equipment for DynCorp International, describes the maintenance process for support equipment used on aircraft carriers.
“When a carrier comes in to port, we strip the gear down completely, we remove the engine (if it has an engine), we take out the transmission, we remove the tires – every component in that piece of equipment. It’s all either cleaned, repaired or replaced. The gear goes through complete sandblast, paint, and once we’re done, it’s like new equipment.”
The Discriminator for DynCorp International
“What makes DynCorp International unique is our people,” said Garcia. “We hire former military, we hire former Marines, we hire former Navy personnel – so they’re already familiar and trained on this gear. We tap into that training and tap into their knowledge and we bring them on board and we execute the mission.”
