Sabena technics finally gets back on-board C-130Hs

On 10th July, Sabena technics confirmed that it had been selected by the SIAé to carry out A- and B-Checks for the French air force's fleet of C-130Hs. This contract positions Sabena technics as a sub-contractor to the Clermont-Ferrand AIA for four years. The first plane is expected at the Bordeaux AIA this autumn.

Two previous contracts had been awarded to Sabena technics for C-130H maintenance: last autumn, to train SIAé B1 and B2 technical personnel and in January to supply spares and equipment to the Clermont-Ferrand site and the Orléans air base.

The industrial company took over French Hercules maintenance on 1st July, a decision which was announced in 2015 as the Portuguese company OGMA had been unsatisfactory. With an availability rate of 22.5% in 2016, the tactical transport fleet is one of the French air force's "weakest students", with the lowest availability rate across the air force's fleets. Figures for 2017 aren't out yet and a question to the government from the François Cornut-Gentille on 9th January is still waiting for an answer

Sabena technics will also be involved in the C-130H upgrade project, integrating the avionics solution which will be supplied by Rockwell Collins. The kits will be installed at the same time as the maintenance inspections.
