CCAD is focused on the customer.  We provide global support by conducting accident investigations, troubleshooting and repairing aircraft anytime, anywhere.  Support for the Warfighter ensure maximum sustainability through interactive training programs available at the depot.  Soldiers work alongside CCAD artisans as they learn how to repair deployed aircraft in their unit.

Though CCAD remains the preferred business solution for rotary wing repair and overhaul, it continues to find ways to reduce cost while increasing production and maintaining superior quality of its products.  Cost-consciousness has become a culture at the depot with leaders, office professionals and artisans finding way to lower cost at all levels.
