Kuwait Extends DCI Helicopter Maintenance Deal
DCI, a service provider with activities on the entire spectrum of defense and domestic security, announces the extension since January 2012 of a 3-year contract concerning Kuwait Air Force (KAF) helicopters.
The State of Kuwait maintains its confidence in DCI, operator of the Army's light aviation school (EA-ALAT), to maintain its 28 helicopters
For over twenty years, DCI-COFRAS, the Army and Gendarmerie department of DCI, has ensured the operational maintenance of KAF French-manufactured helicopters.
“The trust relationship established between the State of Kuwait and DCI-COFRAS teams has allowed this contract to be established. The KAF (Kuwait Air Force) regularly underlines DCI-COFRAS teams' technical skills deployed, commitment to the notion of service and constant availability in these operations demanding extreme professional rigor,” declares General de Zuchowicz, Executive Vice-President of DCI-COFRAS.
DCI was created in 1972 to assist military equipment sales to foreign countries. Its main mission consisted of providing operational training courses based on the know-how of the French Armed Forces. DCI is an upper medium size service provider in which the French government is the concurring shareholder. DCI now operates throughout the defense and security spectrum.
