Maintaining the aircraft that transport our nation’s leaders is a tremendous responsibility,” said Joe Ford, DynAviation president. “We are honored to have earned the trust and confidence of the United States Air Force in this exceptionally important mission and look forward to continuing our legacy of superior service on this contract.

DI was the first contractor awarded this contract, back in 2001.
