Cascade Aerospace Inc. now holds the distinction of being one of only two authorized Lockheed Martin C-130J heavy maintenance centers in the world.
Cascade Aerospace and Lockheed Martin previously signed a 20-year support contract for the C-130J fleet of the Royal Canadian Air Force, the company announced Monday.
“The addition of Cascade Aerospace as the second-ever Lockheed Martin C-130J Heavy Maintenance Center not only strengthens this network, but greatly expands its capabilities as well,” said George Shultz, Lockheed Martin vice president and general manager.
Cascade has long supported Canada’s CC-130 fleet and this new designation ensures it will continue to be an essential partner for Hercules operators in Canada and beyond,” Shultz added.
Shultz said that there are more than 1,400 C-130s operating in 70 countries, making it “essential to have a global support network to keep these Hercules aircraft ready to support any mission— anytime, anywhere.”
Cascade Aerospace also holds the C-130 Hercules service center status.
