State Dept OKs $195M Follow-On C-17 Sustainment Support Deal for Canada

The State Department has approved a potential follow-on $195 million foreign military sale of sustainment support services to Canada’s fleet of C-17 military cargo aircraft.

Canada requested aircraft maintenance, logistics, in-country field services, alternate mission, training and support equipment, software, spares, personnel training and engineering support for five C-17 planes, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Thursday.

Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Lockheed Martin (MYSE: LMT) are the prime contractors on the deal.

The agreement covers defense articles and services necessary to maintain the operational readiness of the Canadian air force’s C-17 fleet as well as support interoperability between U.S. and Canadian C-17s, DSCA noted.

Canada’s current FMS contract for C-17 sustainment will expire Sept. 20.
