Canadian defense giants unite to create new patrol aircraft

The Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC), in collaboration with General Dynamics Mission Systems–Canada and Bombardier Defense, has officially entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to bolster export prospects for Canada’s advanced long-range multi-mission patrol aircraft solution.

The primary objective of this collaborative effort is to explore international market opportunities for state-of-the-art Multi-Mission and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) aircraft once the capability is developed and available for sale.

At the core of the Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft Team’s proposal lies the remarkably efficient and versatile Global 6500 aircraft, impeccably tailored to meet the CMMA requirements.


This jet incorporates next-generation engines, boasting extended range, enduring flight capabilities, and documented superior reliability and fuel efficiency, as validated in the recently published Environmental Product Declaration.

Renowned for its adaptability, the Global aircraft family has been selected for over 10 distinct mission profiles globally. Its aptitude to operate seamlessly in all weather conditions with a full mission payload, coupled with unparalleled speed, range, endurance, and bolstered by a comprehensive 24/7 global support infrastructure, solidifies its status as a preferred platform across various mission requirements worldwide.

Correction: A previous version of this story wrongly describes the prime objective of the CCC-Bombardier-GDMS MOU. The prime objective of the CCC-Bombardier-GDMS MOU is not to deliver an aircraft, but to “explore international market opportunities when the capability is developed and available for sale.”
