[Avionics Today 01-12-2016] Airbus Defence and Space and Provincial Aerospace have established the AirPro SAR Services (AirPro), a joint venture that, upon contract award, will be the Canadian in-service support integrator of the Fixed Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) C295W fleet for the life of its service in Canada. As the FWSAR In-Service Support (ISS) integrator, AirPro is a critical component of the companies' solution. Airbus Defence and Space offers Canada a single point of accountability for the life of the program.
The C295W ISS model is used by more than 20 operators around the world. These aircraft have collectively accumulated over 250,000 hours of flying time in challenging operational environments such as Canada's Maritime and Arctic environments.
