The DMO has contracted Australian Aerospace to supply and manage the Michelin tyre inventories for the RAAF’s fleet of F/A-18A/B Hornet fighters and AP-3C Orion maritime reconnaissance aircraft for a five year period.

“Winning the P-3 tyres business is a natural extension of the through life support services that Australian Aerospace provides the DMO under the AP-3C Orion Platform Systems Support Contract,” said Australian Aerospace CEO Dr Jens Goennemann. “However, the addition of the F/A-18 Hornets is an exciting and welcome addition to our customer support base.”

The agreement has scope in it for extension to other ADF platforms in the future.
