VT Group Awarded Presidential Helicopters Support Contract


VT Group, a leading technology integrator and C5ISR solutions provider, announced that it has been awarded a $105M contract by the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) to support the Presidential Helicopters Program Office (PMA-274), Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1), and Air Test and Evaluation Squadron Twenty-One (HX-21). Under the five-year, single-award contract VT Group will provide the US Navy and Marine Corps with research, development, test, and evaluation (RDT&E); integrated logistics; engineering; and maintenance support.

The presidential helicopter fleet provides rotary wing transportation to the President and Vice President of the United States, heads of state, and other official parties. VT Group has supported PMA-274 since 2004, leveraging its uniquely qualified engineering and technical expertise to provided mission-critical services for the mixed fleet of VH-3D and VH-60N aircraft that currently transport the President, as well as other support platforms. Under this new contract, VT Group will continue to support the existing fleet, but will also integrate the new VH-92A® helicopter into full operational service. The Navy has said that it will procure 21 VH-92A operational aircraft and two test aircraft; the new platform will offer technological and performance improvements and serve as a complete mobile command-and-control platform.

"The presidential helicopters support contract is the flagship of VT Group's growing aerospace engineering portfolio," said VT Group President and Chief Executive Officer John Hassoun. "We are immensely proud to be NAVAIR's partner-of-choice for this high profile, mission-critical program, and equally proud of our engineers and technical experts who remain committed – day in and day out – to NAVAIR's 100% mission success requirement."
