DynCorp International aircraft maintenance modification it received is for $108.2 million  to an existing contract for maintenance services on T-34, T-44, and T-6 training aircraft.

The aircraft maintenance defense contract  will include organizational, intermediate, and depot-level maintenance for 16 T-34 Mentors, 54 T-44 Pegasus and 287 T-6 Texan IIs.

The work for the defense contract aircraft maintenance will be performed at Naval Air Station Whiting Field, Fla., Pensacola, Fla. and other locations across the U.S.and is expected to run through Sep. 2018.

The Mentor, Pegasus and Texan II are light turboprop planes used by the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps for basic flight training.

Their simple design and relatively forgiving flight characteristics allow pilots to learn the basics of being a pilot and also incorporates them to what the fundamentals before moving on the more sophisticated aircraft.

The T-34 Mentor and T-6 Texan II are single-engined turboprops, while the T-44 Pegasus has twin engines. Multiple engines require greater skill in power management and other flight tasks, but provide greater speed and load capacity.
