The last 15 of Canada’s retired Sea King helicopters have been sold to Rotor Maxx Support, which will refurbish the aircraft and re-market them to new customers. 

The aircraft was retired after 55 years from Royal Canadian Air Force and Royal Canadian Navy service in December 2018, since when the Department of National Defence and Public Service and Procurement Canada have been seeking to divest the fleet. 

In addition to the 15 that have been sole to Rotor Maxx Support, nine will be publicly displayed, and one will remain in service as a training aid.

When in service the helicopters were used to conduct anti-submarine warfare and search and rescue operations, as well as providing disaster relief, undertaking counter-narcotic operations, and participating in fishery, international peacekeeping, and pollution patrols.
