EADS North America to provide support and service to four CN235 Maritime Patrol Aircraft for Mexican Navy
EADS North America will deliver contractor logistics support and service (CLSS) to four CN235-300 Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) for Mexican Navy. The CLSS contract consists of one base year with four one-year options. The contract includes a field service representative to provide on-site technical support, management of parts and depot maintenance. EADS North America delivered the four Airbus Military CN235-300 MPAs to the Mexican Navy in 2011 and 2012 under a U.S. Coast Guard managed foreign military sales agreement. The CN235-300 MPAs enhance Mexico’s ability to support the Mérida Initiative, a cooperative security arrangement between the U.S., Mexico and Central American countries. The aircraft’s missions include homeland security, search and rescue, military readiness, cargo and personnel transport, drug interdiction and maritime environmental protection.
