Team Spartan - C-27J Spartan for FWSAR
May 15, 2015

Alenia Aermacchi, in partnership with General Dynamics Missions Systems Canada, DRS Technologies Canada Ltd and KF Aerospace, is offering the C-27J aircraft for Canada’s Fixed-Wing Search-and-Rescue (FWSAR) program.

The C-27J Spartan is the only true medium tactical military aircraft available on the market today. Its robust construction, high power and system redundancy provides a high-level of safety and an unbeatable mission accomplishment rate. In addition, the C-27J brings together many of the capabilities that SAR crews are looking for. It is faster than other aircraft in its class and has exceptional handling, especially at search speeds. It also has great cockpit visibility, more than ample cabin size and outstanding maneuverability and STOL capabilities.

The C-27J also has a high degree of commonality, interoperability and supportability with existing fleets and will provide short-term program acquisition benefits as well as long-term in-service support benefits by reducing operating, training and maintenance costs, making it a low-risk, cost-effective solution for Canada.

Alenia Aermacchi’s C-27J platform will be missionized in Atlantic Canada under General Dynamics Mission Systems Canada. DRS Technologies Canada Ltd will deliver the Training and Simulation Solution, including long-term training for the fleet. KF Aerospace will provide the long-term maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). IMP will modify the green aircraft for the FWSAR role in Canada, and Montreal’s CMC Electronics will provide the Flight Management System. Combined, the C-27J team will support long-term, high-tech jobs, across the country as well as investments in infrastructure and technology, making it an outstanding economic stimulus for Canada’s aerospace sector.

For more information, please visit Team Spartan during CANSEC at booths 1601 and 1511.

Team Spartan remains dedicated to offering Canadians a best-value, low-risk, cost-effective solution that can meet the country’s current FWSAR service requirements from the existing SAR bases.
