Pinnacle Solutions has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Army Multinational Aviation Special Project Office (MASPO) under its Worldwide Logistics Service and Support – Contractor Logistics Support (WLSS-C) program to provide contractor logistics support (CLS) to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Royal Saudi Land Forces (RSLF) and the acquisition of their first eight CH-47F MY II aircraft. Pinnacle will be deploying roughly 80 personnel to the KSA to support the program over the next five years.
Pinnacle will provide initial fielding and sustainment support to the RSLF as they develop their new rotary-wing heavy lift capabilities. The CH-47F maintenance augmentation ties together all aspects of aircraft maintenance, from integrated logistics and sustainment to ground equipment and training support, all to help ensure the highest possible RSLF operational readiness.
Pinnacle’s teams will be comprised of subject matter experts with the experience to allow them to maximize their focus on fleet airworthiness while providing hands-on, on-the-job training to support the Saudi maintenance teams’ professional development. Pinnacle says they are “committed to innovation and the use of value-add cutting-edge technologies to provide the best operational and training support to our customers.” Their maintenance plan leverages the latest technology in aircraft enterprise resource management – a cloud-based Maintenance Management Information System (MMIS) to provide full-scope aircraft maintenance, logistics, and operations management capabilities, the company sasys. Additionally, Pinnacle is delivering its first CH-47F Virtual Maintenance Trainer (VMT) to support ongoing skills training.
