State Department Approves $195M C-17 Aircraft Sustainment Contract To Canada

The US State Department has approved $195 million worth Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Canada for sustainment support for C-17 aircraft. 

The Government of Canada has requested a possible sale of follow-on support for five CC177 aircraft (Canada’s designator for the C-17), including contractor logistics support (CLS) provided through the Globemaster III Integrated Sustainment Program (GISP), in-country field services support, aircraft maintenance and technical support, support equipment, alternate mission equipment, software support, spares, personnel training and training equipment, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and logistics support services, publications and technical documentation, and major modification and retrofit kits support, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced Thursday.

The prime contractors are Boeing Company, Long Beach, California; Boeing Company Training Systems, St. Louis, Missouri; and Lockheed Martin Corporation/MFC, Lexington, Kentucky, the release said.

The sustainment of Canada’s C-17s will ensure the country’s continued capability to rapidly deploy its forces, as well as the continued interoperability between the U.S. and Canadian Air Forces’ C-17s.  Canada’s current contract supporting its five C-17s will expire on 20 September, the statement added.
