Kellstrom Defense Aerospace has been selected by Airbus Group Asia Pacific to assist with the transition of five Lockheed Martin C-130H Hercules from the Royal Australian Air Force to Indonesia.
Under the agreement, Kellstrom’s Australian subsidiary will procure, inspect, warehouse and deliver C-130H material to Airbus’s facility at RAAF Base Richmond, and provide further support to the programme.
“We remain committed to supporting Airbus and to ensuring the Royal Australian Air Force C-130H aircraft are successfully transitioned to the Indonesian Air Force.”
The RAAF retired its last H-model Hercules in November 2012, and had agreed to donate four of the type to Indonesia, while a further five were sold to the nation.
