CNATRA Detachment

The CNATRA Contract Maintenance Detachment's function is to perform surveillance of contractor operations for Naval Air Training Command aviation maintenance contracts. The contracts monitored are for the T-45C Goshawk. The Goshawk and related ground training devices are the means by which Training Air Wing TWO, with training squadrons VT-21 and VT-22 provide jet fighter pilot training to Student Naval Aviators.

Currently, Vertex has the contract to provide aircraft maintenance on the T-45C, Rolls-Royce has the F405 Power-By-The-Hour engine contract, and Fidelity has the contract to maintain flight simulators. CAE USA holds the simulator instructor contract.

Although the contractors have their own Quality Control inspectors, it is the CNATRA Maintenance Det.'s job to ensure strict compliance. This is accomplished through a series of process audits, which are conducted by CNATRA personnel who have the appropriate training in contract surveillance. The CNATRA Det. also performs surveillance on about 16 training detachments per year, ranging from one to three weeks in duration.

The CNATRA Maintenance Detachment is one of 20 tenant commands on board Naval Air Station Kingsville. Current manning includes the Officer-In-Charge, Deputy OIC, and 10 civil service personnel. Offices are located at 614 McCain St., Building 2741. Contact Numbers: DSN 876-6222/6224; Commercial: (361) 516-6222/6224; FAX (361) 516-6119.
