Oak Grove Technologies to Support FBI’s Helicopter Pilot Services
Oak Grove Technologies is pleased to announce their selection by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to assist with their Critical Incident Response Group (CIRG) program. Oak Grove will provide pilots for the UH-60 aircraft fleet and will be responsible for the management and operations to ensure the program’s success.
CIRG’s primary focus involves responding to critical incidents with regards to counter terrorism and preventing weapons of mass destruction (WMD). FBI has an aviation division to support these missions with a fleet of fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, including the Sikorsky UH-60M “Black Hawk” aircraft. The pilots are required to adhere to strict rotation to be able to provide 24 hours, 7 days/week, and 365 day-per-year response capability.
Oak Grove is honored to be selected by the FBI to provide this important role. These pilots are the best of the best, and it’s critical to manage all the details from their required training hours to their assigned missions.
Under the CIRG program, pilots are required to be available to depart within a very short period of time once notified. Along with preventing WMD activity, they’re often flying into harm’s way to perform inserts and/or extractions in potentially contaminated areas, formation flights, and support MEDEVAC emergencies.
