On September 6, 2018, Yulista Tactical Services, LLC (YTS) was issued a task order adding the Wallops Flight Facility to their contract for NASA Aircraft Maintenance, Logistics, Integration, Configuration Management and Engineering (ALICE) with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Under this task order YTS is privileged to support NASA GSFC/WFF and is providing support on multiple earth science missions such as: ORACLES, Operation IceBridge, CAMP2EX, ACT-America and U.S. Navy Fleet Carrier Landing Practice (FCLP). At GSFC/WFF, YTS is responsible for maintaining the P-3 Orion, B-200 King Air, C-130 Hercules, T-34C, C-23 and UH-1. Services provided include aircraft maintenance and operations, airfield operations, air traffic control and fueling. With the addition of the NASA GSFC/WFF Task Order, YTS is now supporting three of NASA’s centers which includes Johnson Space Center (JSC), Langley Research Center (LaRC) and GSFC with employees located at four separate airfields. The official task order start date is October 1, 2018.
“I am extremely honored to be a partner with the NASA GSFC/WFF Team. The breadth of operations within the NASA GSFC/WFF organization is amazing. Here at Wallops, our NASA/YTS partnership is involved in executing a wide range of earth science missions and airfield operations and support for NAVY FCLP. NASA has a legacy for making the impossible possible, and this happens to be Yulista’s mantra. Together we will continue the legacy.”
