Aircraft Maintenance

The Air Test and Evaluation Squadron THREE ZERO (VX-30) Maintenance Department is comprised of sailors, government civilians, and contract maintainers. Defense Support Services LLC provides the maintenance and logistical support VX-30 needs to accomplish the mission. VX-30’s aircraft are some of the oldest in the Navy; the NP-3Ds is over 50 years old and one of the KC-130Ts is over 30 years old. Maintaining these aircraft requires a skill level and knowledge that is not readily available in the Fleet due to the nature of our sailors' rotations. The local expertise provided by the 90 contract maintainers allows the squadron to fly very old aircraft day in and day out around the globe.
