COMMENTS

Yuma International Airport is co-located with Marine Corps Air Station Yuma (MCAS Yuma). No other airport in the world has such a close working relationship with the military industry. MCAS Yuma is literally our "Aviation Partner." An important part of the partnership is to support the MCAS acquisition of the new Joint Strike Fighter, the F-35 Lighting II.
The purpose of DCC is to provide a full service industrial aviation center for these contractors that support either military or for testing of other aviation related products. We do this by offering a wide range of facilities and business support to include facilities and a secured site for their aircraft and personnel. .  Essentially our mission is to provide Government and Defense Contractors with all the logistics and facilities necessary to meet the operational needs for their Company mission.
