Morocco receives Canadair with new cockpit


Morocco should soon receive the first Canadair aircraft equipped with a new cockpit from the Canadian aircraft maintenance company, Cascade Aerospace.

In a post on its Facebook page, the Far-Maroc forum informs that the Canadian company Cascade Aerospace is about to deliver to the Moroccan air force the first aircraft equipped with a new cockpit, similar to the CL-415. The same source specifies that after handing over the aircraft to DHC de Havilland, the latter will carry out the painting process and the final touch-ups, before handing it over to Morocco.

Cascade Aerospace’s receipt of the first Royal Air Force (RAF) Canadair aircraft, a CL-415, at the end of June 2022, allowed the cockpit development process to begin, following the successful installation of modern engines.

With a fleet of 8 aircraft, three of which will be delivered in 2022 at a cost of 1.2 billion dirhams, Morocco is the only Arab and African country among the 12 countries with Canadair aircraft. The other countries are Canada, Spain, the United States, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Thailand, South Korea, Croatia and Malaysia. The kingdom received its first Canadair in February 2011.
