BDA awarded C-17A contract

30th June 2017 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Boeing Defence Australia (BDA) has been awarded an Australian C-17A sustainment services contract worth AUD $70 million ($53.15 million), the Australian Department of Defence (DoD) announced on 28 June.

The contract to support the Royal Australian Air Force's fleet of eight C-17A Globemaster aircraft is a key initiative for the ongoing support to the RAAF's heavy air lift capability.

According to the Australian DoD, the arrangements to maintain the C-17A aircraft have been in place since 2006 when the first C-17A was delivered to Australia. The new arrangement replaces some elements of the existing sustainment arrangements with the US government, while keeping Australia in the global supply system for C-17.

The contract will commence in October.
