RNLAF fleet of Apache-, Chinook- and Cougar-helicopters as well as the F-16’s, PC-7’s and the KDC-10 tanker aircraft are included in the contract. The total support solution will be delivered from the Fokker facility in Hoofddorp, the Netherlands.

Paul Vorstermans, Vice President at Fokker Services said: “Fokker is proud to be selected for long-term total support of the RNLAF fleet. We recognize and appreciate the confidence that the RNLAF has demonstrated in our team and we look forward to further develop our relationship.
