Field Aerospace's Flight Operations service can keep your fleet in top shape, no matter where in the world it's located. Our expert team will come to you, thoroughly test your aircraft and free up your personnel to perform real-world missions.
Field Aerospace's flight operations services include functional check flights, operational check flights, acceptance test profiles, and other flights that support U.S. Department of Defense operations. Our experienced crews conduct ferry flights and perform pre-induction checks on aircraft undergoing modifications. Our mobile flight crews can also accompany the squadron to other locations. Field Aerospace's flight operations specifications fully meet the strict guidelines of AFI 10-220V1, Contractor's Flight and Ground Operations. Our experience includes MH-53, UH-60, CV-27, C-130, KC-10 and Sherpa aircraft.
Our safety record is flawless. In fact, we are credited with saving two aircraft during serious mechanical failures, and another aircraft from serious damage when landing gear would not extend. Our personnel turnover rate is very low, allowing us to provide the continuity needed for a successful program during pre- and post-modification tests. Our crews test each aircraft to the same high standard-every time.
In addition, our pre-induction flight program can save you money and increase your aircraft's availability. That's because we identify and document problems with all aircraft systems during testing, even if the problem is not part of or affected by the modification. These problems can then be fixed during the modification, potentially saving significant aircraft downtime later on.
