Aerospace execs gear up to pitch their planes as Liberals expected to hold competition for CF-18 replacement
from National Post
Canadian firms have now won $1 billion worth of work on the F-35 fighter jet, a selling point that aircraft manufacturer Lockheed Martin hopes to use as it prepares for an expected competition to replace the CF-18 fleet. Cabinet officials met recently to discuss the way forward on a CF-18 fighter replacement and industry sources say they now expect the Liberal government to eventually proceed to a competition to buy new aircraft. Aerospace firms are shifting into high gear for that event, although the timing of an announcement is unknown.
