After a protracted competition, Discovery Air Defence Services has been awarded the long-term Contracted Airborne Training Services (CATS) contract by the Government of Canada. This contract is for 10 years with one two-year option and a second 17-month option. DA Defence will deliver CATS services to the Canadian Armed Forces from permanent operating bases located in four different Canadian provinces using its fleet of Alpha Jet and Learjet aircraft.

‘It is an honour to be selected as Canada’s long term partner for the provision of CATS by offering a true made-in-Canada solution,’ said Paul Bouchard, President of DA Defence. ‘Our outstanding team of highly experienced CF-18 pilots and fighter weapons instructors combined with our team of dedicated maintenance, engineering and support personnel will continue to deliver the world’s most comprehensive airborne training to prepare the Canadian military for ever-changing challenges and threats to Canada and its allies beyond 2030.’
