ST Aerospace has secured a contract to provide the Royal Air Force of Oman (RAFO) with a full scale maintenance and modernisation solution for three of its C130 Hercules aircraft. The first aircraft is expected to be inducted in the third quarter of 2013, targeting for redelivery in the first quarter of 2014. 
A significant part of the contract involves the modernisation of the aircraft cockpit, where ST Aerospace will equip RAFO’s fleet of C130 aircraft with an avionics suite that is Global Air Traffic Management (GATM) compliant. This will ensure that the aircraft is able to navigate safely, efficiently and accurately through CNS/ATM-regulated airspace worldwide, significantly improving its operational readiness, despatch reliability and operational efficiency.   
An integrated service provider, ST Aerospace leverages its maintenance, repair and overhaul expertise, as well as its strong in-house engineering capability, and value adds through performing depot level maintenance and cockpit modernisation simultaneouesly. With a short turnaround time of five months, RAFO will enjoy increased savings with minimised downtime of its fleet.
