Canadian FWSAR programme progresses

13th August 2020 - 17:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) has accepted its second and third CC-295 aircraft in Spain under its  Fixed Wing Search and Rescue Aircraft Replacement (FWSAR) programme.

The two aircraft are expected to arrive at  Canadian Forces Base Comox, British Columbia, later this year for training and operational testing with 19 Wing.

Airbus delivered the first CC-295 (the Canadian designation of the Airbus Defence and Space C-295 aircraft) to Canada in late 2019. 

The RCAF is set to receive 16 C295 aircraft in total, along with all in-service support elements including simulation, training and engineering services; construction of a new training centre in Comox; and maintenance and support services.
