Corpus Christi Army Depot
What We Do....

Established in 1961, Corpus Christi Army Depot is the industry leader of repair and overhaul for helicopters, engines and components in Army Aviation.  As the premier rotary wing repair facility, the depot excels by delivering the highest quality product on time at the lowest possible cost.

Under the highest level of certification, CCAD has completed world-class maintenance on more than 1098 aircraft; 21,555 engines and 411,398 helicopter components since 2003 for the UH-60 Black Hawk, CH-47 Chinook, AH-64 Apache, OH-58 Kiowa and the Air Force HH-60 Pave Hawk.

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.

We continue to adapt to a change in military tempo by utilizing the best business practices within the commercial sector to posture itself as an elite organization prepared to handle the needs of the future.  Corpus Christi Army Depot operates as a premier business partner within the Aviation and Missile Command and Army Material Command to support every Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine.
