GDIT Secures $1.7B Army Flight School Training Support Services Contract

The U.S. Army has awarded General Dynamics Information Technology a $1.7 billion contract to continue the support the company provides to the Army Aviation Center of Excellence’s Flight School XXI training program for rotary-wing aviators at Fort Rucker, Alabama. GDIT is the prime contractor providing simulation services for the program.

The contract builds on GDIT’s nearly two-decade partnership with the Army. According to GDIT President Amy Gilliland, a 4×24 member and a six-time Wash100 award winner, the company has provided the military service with over 1 million hours of simulation training. The Flight School Training Support Services contract has a five-year base period and seven option years, GDIT said.

Work under the new contract includes providing, operating, maintaining and upgrading a suite of virtual flight simulators that will allow entry-level and graduate-level students to enhance their skills in using multiple cargo, attack, utility and training helicopter platforms.

GDIT will use its experience with delivering modern training programs across the Department of Defense to meet the Army’s Flight School XXI simulation and training needs.
