Presidential Helicopter

NTA provides Contractor Logistics Support, (CLS), Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E) support and aircraft maintenance support and services on designated aircraft in direct support of The Presidential Helicopters Program Office, PMA-274. The program office has responsibility for providing current and future safe and timely helicopter transportation for the President and Vice President of the United States, heads of state and other official parties. The global nature of these commitments requires aircraft to deploy worldwide and operate in varying environmental and climatic conditions without mission degradation. Our Direct/Indirect support includes the performance of organizational, intermediate, and depot level maintenance and services. Currently these aircraft include heavily modified and unique NVH-3A and NSH-60F which will transition to support for the VH-92A.

Individuals supporting this contract undergo extreme security screening and are required to have exceptional technical skills and work ethic. Our personnel enjoy career longevity, financial compensation as well as recognition and benefits above the standard maintainer and support technician. Our staff includes senior personnel for all walks of life sourced from all branches of service and includes over 25 labor categories and partnerships with industry leaders in rotary aircraft support. Our support services to PMA-274 began in 2004. Ever since the first task order awarded, NTA has considered HMX-1, PMA-274, Test Wing Atlantic, and NAVAIR our top priority. A program like this has a “Zero Fail Mission” and we strive to ensure their requirements are consistently satisfied with the highest level of performance each and every day.
