DynCorp International Receives Highest Award from FAA.

ANDREWS AIR FORCE BASE, Md. -- DynCorp International (NYSE:DCP) has won the Federal Aviation Administration's Diamond Certificate of Excellence for the fifth consecutive year.

The award recognizes DI for providing outstanding maintenance for aircraft used by America's leaders at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

The FAA's Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Award is a program based entirely on the commitment made by the maintenance technicians to further their technical knowledge and understanding by attending advanced training courses. There are five levels of the award, with the diamond being the highest.

The award acknowledges that at least 50 percent of DI's AMTs advanced their skills through the company's sponsored training program.

In addition to the overall company award, 175 DI employees were given AMT awards based on their training. There are five levels of the award, with the diamond being the highest.

Len Campbell, a DI Andrews Support Division Manager, accepted the award on behalf of the company.

"The aviation community believes that the AMT award symbolizes the best of what the aviation maintenance industry has to offer. This award represents DI's willingness to maintain the aircraft entrusted to its care and recognizes the personal commitment afforded by the men and women who meet and exceed the highest level of aviation standards in accomplishing the demanding mission of the United States' most visible Special Air Mission Fleet," Campbell said.
