CF-18 aircraft extension to 2025 will mean extra maintenance costs for RCAF
from Ottawa CItizen
I've had a number of references on
to the CF-18 modernization, which the Conservative government says will keep the fighter aircraft flying until 2025. But a knowledgeable
reader and former fighter pilot points out that the upgrade was never intended to expand the actual flying life (ELE) of the CF- 18. It will add various upgrades to the cockpit but it has nothing to extend the actual flying state of the plane. That instead will be done through increased maintenance and cost to the RCAF.
