CC-150 Life Extension

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


This project will extend the estimated life expectacy (ELE) of the CC-150 Polaris beyond 2026.


The strategic airlift, VVIP and air-to-air refuelling capability are critical capabilities which must be extended beyond the current projected life of the CC-150. This project will upgrade all five CC-150 aircrafts with the avionics capabilities to operate in future domestic and international airspace and implement necessary engine and airframe modifications prior to an eventual Strategic Tanker Transport fleet replacement.
