Erickson Incorporated is pleased to announce a six-month extension of its current four-year contract for government sustainment. The contract extension is valued at up to $29 million and funds operations for the remainder of 2016.
“This contract further enhances our reputation as a trusted provider of aerial services in support of U.S. Government operations and initiatives,” said Brian Pierson, Vice President of Global Defense and Security at Erickson.
Under the contract extension, Erickson will continue to provide airlift services for passengers and cargo for Fluor in support of the U.S. Government’s Sustainment Contract.
In addition to supporting military contractors with helicopter transportation services over mountainous terrain, Erickson recently announced contract wins with the U.S. Coast Guard and Military Sealift Command (MSC). Erickson has performed Vertical Replenishment (VERTREP) operations for MSC and the U.S. Navy since 2004.
