After more than nine years of support to operations in Afghanistan, ARMA Aviation (ARMA) completed delivery of the one millionth Mi-series aircraft spare part for the Afghanistan Special Mission Wing (SMW) and the Afghanistan Air Force (AAF). ARMA Aviation is a sub-contractor under the Future Flexible Acquisition and Sustainment Tool (F2AST) Contractor Logistic Support (CLS) contract. This Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract provides support services and materiel procurement in support of the Non-Standard Rotary Wing Aircraft (NSRWA) Project Management Office (PMO). Through this contract, ARMA has provided full spectrum supply chain management support that includes the forecasting, procurement, inspection, delivery, and inventory management of all spare parts and repair of repairables for the Afghan Mi-17 rotary wing fleet. These efforts have directly impacted the operational readiness of the SMW and AAF units while affording the United States Government a cost-effective and responsive logistics solution.

To recognize this historic event and significant milestone, ARMA presented commemorative tail rotor blades to the NSRWA PMO in Huntsville, Alabama and to the SMW and AAF units in Afghanistan. LTC Chris Enderton accepted the commemorative blade on behalf of the NSRWA PMO in Huntsville on November 16, 2017.

ARMA Aviation president, Steven Shugart, praised the hard work and outstanding performance of both teams. “This day marks a significant event in the sustainment effort of the Afghanistan Mi-17 rotary wing fleet. I want to thank all of our employees for their hard work and dedication as this would not have been possible without each of your efforts.”
