AAR announced that the Court of Federal Claims (COFC) entered judgment on October 31st in favor of the U.S. Government, upholding the award of the Worldwide Aviation Support Services (WASS) by the U.S Department of State to AAR Airlift and dismissing the protest filed by incumbent DynCorp International.

“We are very pleased that the Court affirmed the State Department’s decision to award the WASS contract to AAR Airlift,” said Don Wetekam, Chairman, AAR Airlift. “Our talented team is excited to begin work on this contract and deliver world-class service for this important national security program.”
