The value of the contract will be added to AECOM’s backlog for the first quarter of fiscal year 2018.
“We are honored to strengthen our relationship with the U.S. Army by continuing to serve as its primary partner for rotary wing flight training,” said Michael S. Burke, AECOM’s chairman and chief executive officer. “For several years, we have been investing in our business to further differentiate our leading government services capabilities. Our continued partnership at Fort Rucker speaks to our success in these efforts. We look forward to safely and successfully delivering this contract for the U.S. Army.”
AECOM will continue to provide all personnel, supervision and other services necessary to perform on-going services for rotary wing flight training, flight training support and flight training service support.
