Voyageur Aviation has been awarded a contract with the Department of National Defence (DND) to provide several upgrades to its fleet of Dash 8-100 CT-142 aircraft.
The award of this project further strengthens Voyageur’s portfolio on special-mission aircraft through innovative engineering services, heavy maintenance, parts and logistics support, as well as aircraft operations.
