Public Services and Procurement Canada has signed a contract for the maintenance of King Air 350ER aircraft with Team CERTAS.

Public Services and Procurement Canada, on behalf of the Department of National Defence, has awarded an in-service support and maintenance contract to Team CERTAS.

The contract is valued at around C$72 million ($60 million) for a potential duration of eight years. It could be extended for over 20 years.

Team CERTAS will provide in-service support and maintenance for three King Air ISR 350ER aircraft, which were purchased in 2019 from Textron Aviation through the US FMS programme.

The work will support the Royal Canadian Air Force with general aircraft maintenance, deployment logistics and by providing training and engineering services.

The aircraft will be configured with military-grade advanced sensors and secure communications equipment, which will improve situational awareness on the ground.

All three aircraft will be fully integrated with associated mission systems and delivered to the government of Canada in 2022.

Team CERTAS is a JV between General Dynamics Mission Systems – Canada and Voyageur Aviation Corporation.
