USCG completes first PDM of C-27J Spartan

7th December 2018 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Coast Guard has completed the first programmed depot maintenance (PDM) on a C-27J Spartan medium range surveillance aircraft.

The PDM cycle included a full tear-down and rebuild of the entire aircraft including all propulsion systems, corrosion inspection and repainting.

The PDM allows for a much more thorough inspection of the airframe than what can be conducted at the unit. It also allows the coast guard to embody service bulletins recommended by the OEM without taking the plane off the flight schedule.

A second aircraft is currently undergoing PDM – planned to be completed within months – and a third has arrived in Elizabeth City to begin the cycle. Each aircraft will go directly from PDM completion to missionisation. Once missionisation is complete, CGNR 2702 will be the first C-27J Spartan completely overhauled and configured to coast guard specifications.
