L3 MAS Awarded Five-Year Option to Its CH-147F Chinook In-Service Support Contracts

MIRABEL, Quebec, April 17, 2019 – L3 MAS is proud to announce that Boeing has exercised a five-year contract option for L3 MAS to continue providing Support and Test Equipment In-Service Support (ISS) services, Logistics Support Analysis (LSA) and Electronic Publication management services on the Department of National Defence (DND) CH-147F Chinook aircraft fleet. The work will be carried out at the customer’s operating base in Petawawa, Ontario, and in L3 MAS’ facilities in Mirabel, Quebec, and Halifax, Nova Scotia.

“We are honored to renew these contracts with our partner, Boeing,” said Ugo Paniconi, Acting Vice President and General Manager of L3 MAS. “We understand the importance of this strategic fleet, and we are committed to providing DND with best-value sustainment support solutions for these helicopters. This option award is a testament to L3 MAS’ commitment to customer focus and performance excellence in providing these services over the past five years.”
