Upgraded C-130H delivered to Indonesia

23rd March 2012 - 17:09 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ARINC Aerospace has announced that it has successfully completed an extensive Programmed Depot Maintenance (PDM) project on a C-130H Hercules transport aircraft for the Indonesian Air Force. The company made the announcement in a 19 March 2012 statement.

The delivery followed months of significant structural and systems repair work at ARINC’s Aircraft Maintenance and Operations. The 30-year-old transport plane was flown back to Halim Air Force Base (AFB) in Jakarta, Indonesia, with an arrival ceremony held on February 24 at which US Ambassador Scot Marciel formally handed over the aircraft from the US Government to the Indonesian Air Force.

ARINC’s customer is the US Air Force C-130 FMS Programme Office, and the work represents one of the first awards in more than ten years for the Indonesian Air Force under the US Air Force’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) programme.

Indonesia’s  C-130H aircraft are critical assets used primarily for humanitarian aid and rescue missions in this region prone to earthquakes and flooding. The work performed by ARINC Aerospace is an important first step in improving the Indonesian Air Force airlift capability, and the programme was significant in the effort to improving US–Indonesian relations.
