Voyageur Awarded DND Contract to Upgrade Dash 8-100 CT-142 Aircraft

Voyageur Aviation Corp has been awarded a contract from the Department of National Defence (DND) to provide several upgrades to their fleet of Dash 8-100 CT-142 aircraft.

The award of this project further strengthens Voyageur’s portfolio on special mission aircraft through innovative engineering services, heavy maintenance, parts & logistics support, as well as aircraft operations.

The Department of National Defence, at 402 Squadron in Winnipeg, operates a fleet of four CT-142 aircraft for the purpose of training Air Combat Systems Officers (ACSO) and Airborne Electronic Sensor (AES OP) Operators. The modifications include upgrades to the communications, navigation, surveillance, and air traffic management avionics as well as the replacement and integration of upgraded radar systems including training.

“The award of this contract supports our growth strategy of developing defence programs related to special mission aircraft services,” said Carl Kumpic, Vice President, Defence & Government Programs. “We are very pleased to support DND on the modifications and sustainment of this unique training fleet which is an important training component for Canada’s next generation of special mission operators helping to ensure Canada’s interests domestically and abroad.”
