Coordinates: 27°41′51″N 97°16′40″W / 27.6976°N 97.2779°W / 27.6976; -97.2779 Corpus Christi Army Depot (CCAD) is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) Center of Industrial and Technical Excellence (CITE) for rotary wing aircraft. It has been a tenant of Naval Air Station Corpus Christi since 1961.

The CCAD mission is to ensure aviation readiness for all service and international sales programs. CCAD is currently the largest facility of its type in the world and serves as a depot training base for active duty Army, National Guard, Reserve and international personnel. The depot's field teams provide worldwide onsite maintenance services for units around the world, saving a considerable amount of time and money by repairing aircraft engines and components on site rather than having them transported to and from the depot for repair. CCAD provides overhaul, repair, modification, recapitalization, retrofit, testing and modernization of helicopters, engines and components for all service and international sales of rotary wing aircraft.

In 2018 Gail Atkins became the first woman to lead CCAD.[1]
