Alenia Aeronautica to support Bulgarian C-27Js
Alenia Aeronautica has signed a framework agreement that will see it define the procedures for the supply of logistic support services to the C-27J fleet of the Bulgarian Air Force. The work will cover a ten year period, with a first contract signed to cover the first five years.
Worth 25 million euro, the contract includes, in addition to the spare parts, ground support equipment, technical material, maintenance inspections, training activities, also a specific and continuous on-site technical assistance, thanks to a ‘Field Service Representative’ at Sofia’s Bulgarian base, to fully meet the technical-operational requirements of the customer.
The last of three C-27Js were delivered to the Bulgarian Air Force earlier this year, following a contract signed in 2006.
According to the company, the C-27J is a new-generation tactical transport aircraft compliant with NATO standards and interoperable with heavier airlifters in service with other Atlantic Alliance countries and also capable of operating in the most complex operational scenarios, thanks to its active and passive self-defence systems. The Bulgarian C-27Js are equipped with self-defence systems that significantly improve the aircraft’s capability of operating in the most difficult operational conditions.
