Article from The Oklahoman, Feb. 14, 2017

Delaware Resource Group of Oklahoma LLC plans to add simulator technicians, logisticians, engineers, support personnel, proctors and managers to fulfill an eight-year contract it has secured to provide ground-based training for the U.S. Air Force’s T-6 aircraft.

As part of the contract, the Oklahoma City company will add seven additional locations in the United States, including one at Vance Air Force Base in Enid, company officials said.

The T-6A Texan II is a two-seat, single-engine trainer used by the military to develop students’ basic flying skills.

Delaware Resource Group said this latest military contract is the second it recently received as it continues to solidify its market presence as a total training systems integrator, providing services and support all over the world.

In August, the company was awarded the international ATLAS II training contract supporting various fighter aircraft for the U.S. Air Forces in Europe.

“The award ... is a testament to the hard work and dedication by our entire team,” said Brian Busey, Delaware Resource Group’s senior vice president and COO.

“As we head into our 15th year as a defense contractor, we are excited to see our strategic vision play out in this market.”
