Marshall Aerospace & Defence Group (ADG) is to provide aircraft support, technical support and training for the fleet of C-130H HERCULES aircraft operated by the Cameroon Air Force (CAF), the company announced on 4 May.
The five-year contract, signed at CAF headquarters in Yaoundé late last year, has now been ratified by the Cameroon Presidency. Depth maintenance on the fleet and important technical support will be provided at ADG’s Cambridge facilities. Training will also be provided to ensure the CAF has the necessary skills to deliver frontline maintenance and support in Cameroon. Marshall ADG will work closely with CAF logistics partner, Aeromec, to ensure the best possible delivery of services.
“The Cameroon Air Force demands the very highest standards of support across all its fleets and the C-130 provides critical capability to our important airlift missions […] Marshall ADG has an excellent reputation within the industry for providing world-class support on the C-130 and our evaluation process confirmed that their solution delivered the best value for money. We look forward to developing a solid long-term relationship with Marshall and seeing the benefits that their experience will bring to our C-130 operations,” commented Brig-Gen Jean-Calvin Momha, CAF Chief of Staff.
“We […] support the largest customer base of C-130 operators in the world and this latest contract is very much testimony to the extensive knowledge and expertise of our skilled workforce on large military aircraft,” added Marshall ADG CEO, Alistair McPhee.
