Cascade Aerospace Inc. announced that it has conducted the first test flight of a foreign military aircraft from its base in Abbotsford, British Columbia. This begins the completion phase of the Mexican Air Force C-130K Maintenance and Modernization program which began in 2014 and marks a significant milestone for the BC Aerospace Industry.
“Over the past year, engineering teams at Cascade Aerospace have designed and installed a complete upgrade to the cockpit avionic system including the integration of the advanced digital Rockwell Collins Flight 2 avionics suite to meet twenty-first century navigation and communication requirements, as well as digital fuel quantity indication and engine instrument display systems
This aircraft, one of two currently in Cascade’s hangar, has also had a new Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) installed and a Wing Availability and Sustainment Program conducted on it.
Operational and technical training for Mexican Air Force personnel was conducted at the company’s facility in Abbotsford, British Columbia using the onsite Rockwell Collins Flight2 procedural training simulator.
