Herndon, VA — Akima today announced that its subsidiary, RiverTech, has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Air Force (USAF) to support Mobility Air Forces (MAF) flying squadron at 14 Air Force Bases across the contiguous United States. The estimated value of the contract is $70.2 million over five years, if all options are exercised.

“Akima is committed to supporting Air Force efforts to increase the production of aircrews and improve the quality of life for Mobility Air Forces personnel” said Scott Rauer, President of Akima’s Facilities Solutions Group. “Our aviation logistics professionals are proud to expand our efforts to aid flying personnel in achieving their missions.”

The contract was awarded under the OASIS Small Business (SB) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. RiverTech will absorb select non-flying duties in order to reduce the workload of MAF flying personnel working at flying squadrons at each base where support is provided.
