CT-114 Life Extension Beyond 2020

Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


To replace and upgrade aircraft systems in order to extend the life of the CT-114 Tutor beyond 2020.


This project will implement key upgrades to the aircraft to extend the estimated life of the Tutor beyond 2020. This is necessary as a risk mitigation effort due to the timeline of the Future Aircrew Training Project and the likely event that the Air Demonstration aircraft will be chosen from the new training fleet. The upgrade may include replacing wing components, replacing the ejection seat with a zero/zero capability and improving the wheel brakes to allow operations at remote locations. This project is linked to the Snowbird Replacement Project.
