BRIDGEWATER, Va., July 15, 2015 — Dynamic Aviation begins work this week on a new contract with the United States Forest Service (USFS) to supply one King Air E90 for air attack. The plane will rotate between Alamogordo, New Mexico and LaGrande, Oregon throughout the fire season.
Air attack has been used by the USFS for many years as a means of aerially managing a fire. During a fire, a highly-trained airborne fire fighter or Air Tactical Group Supervisor (ATGS) will be aboard the plane to coordinate ground personnel and incident aircraft.
The contract, originally awarded to Dynamic Aviation on March 17, was postponed due to a bid protest which was dismissed by the Government Accountability Office on June 30.
