DUKE FIELD, Fla. --
In July, the 919th Special Operations Wing will hand over C-145A Skytruck maintenance duties to the contractor, Sierra Nevada.
Currently, the wing's active-duty and Reserve Airmen maintain both the C-145 and C-146 Wolfhound.
The 919th Special Operations Maintenance Group’s mission will then focus solely on the C-146.
The Skytruck is used as a training and proficiency aircraft for special operators and combat aviation advisors. The C-146 is an operational nonstandard aviation aircraft.
