DynCorp International to Support Royal Saudi Helicopter Fleet

The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command has awarded a contract to DynCorp International (NYSE:DCP) to provide helicopter maintenance support services for the Royal Saudi helicopter fleet. The contract, which was awarded under the Foreign Military Sales program, has a two year base period with a contract value of $17.2 million, and three one-year option periods. The total potential value if all options are exercised is up to $43.1 million.

DynCorp International will assist the Royal Saudi Land Forces Aviation Command (RSLFAC) in maximizing aircraft operational capability and achieving training objectives. The RSLFAC fleet contains Apache, Blackhawk, and combat scout aircraft. DynCorp International will provide support services and personnel to augment, train and advise personnel of the Royal Saudi Land Forces Aviation Command. All work will be performed in Saudi Arabia.

The contract was first awarded in April 2009, but was under a stay-of-performance due to protest by the incumbent. The stay-of-performance was lifted January 13, 2010, following denial of the protest by the Government Accountability Office, and a 60 day phase-in transition began January 30, 2010.

“I am very pleased that DynCorp International is expanding its aviation support services to the Royal Saudi helicopter fleet, building on our successful performance in platform support elsewhere in the region,” said DynCorp International President and CEO William L. Ballhaus.
