The project will provide upgrades and modifications to the CC-150 fleet to address ageing aircraft, obsolescence, and capability deficiencies, in order to extend the Estimated Life Expectancy (ELE) beyond 2026.


The strategic airlift, strategic Government of Canada Transport 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 aircraft with the ability to continue to operate in domestic and international airspace.
