DynCorp, April 15, 2015 - MCLEAN, Va. – DynCorp International (DI) announced today that they have been awarded a contract to continue supporting the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) aviation program helping suppress and control wildfires.

DI will also continue providing full flight operations, including pilots, for CAL FIRE’s fixed wing fleet of aerial firefighting aircraft. Aircraft maintenance services include repair, overhaul, modification, and manufacturing of airframes, engines, propellers, helicopter rotating components, and various aircraft parts and components.

“We have been honored to be able to provide this unique support to the CAL FIRE team since 2001,” said James Myles, DynAviation senior vice president, DynCorp International. “This new award continues our partnership with CAL FIRE and retains DI’s status in the aerial firefighting community as part of the world renowned CAL FIRE Aviation Program.”
