Erickson to Support SOCAF in Five Year, $13M Contract


Erickson Inc, a leading global provider of aviation services, has announced that it has been awarded a five year, $13 million Blanket Purchase Agreement by the United States Special Operations Command Africa (SOCAF). Erickson is one of a few select vendors that will be providing “on demand” fixed wing aerial services to the U.S. Department of Defense, transporting personnel and equipment in the North and Western regions of Africa.

“Erickson is proud to be a part of the United States Special Operations African Command team,” said Brian Pierson, Vice President and General Manager of Erickson’s Global Defense and Security business unit. “This award demonstrates Erickson’s continued ability to deliver support to the U.S. military in one of the most austere and remote operating environments in the world.“

Currently, Erickson operates aircraft in Central and East Africa in support of USAFRICOM missions. Due to its operational footprint, Erickson is well positioned to provide “on demand” services. The contract commences immediately and has a period of performance extending through November 2021.
