First USCG C-27J enters PDM
The coast guard is receiving 14 C-27J aircraft from the US Air Force. The PDM process will ensure that each aircraft is inspected, upgraded, and repaired as required to meet the coast guard’s operational requirements.
Depot maintenance for the first aircraft is planned to take approximately a year and will allow the Coast Guard HC-27J Asset Project Office (APO) to test the depot-level maintenance procedures it began developing last July. The service will validate any changes to the maintenance procedures on the second aircraft to undergo PDM.
Once all 14 C-27Js are operational, two are scheduled to be in PDM at any given time, allowing Air Stations Sacramento, California, and Clearwater, Florida, to keep six Spartans each in rotation for mission execution. Each of the 14 aircraft in the fleet is planned to undergo its first depot maintenance by 2021.
