welcomed the signing of a contract amendment today with the government of
Canada to bring the Canadian Maritime Helicopter Program to completion and
accelerate the CH148 Cyclone helicopter's entry into operational service. The

retiring the current SEA KING™ helicopter fleet, in 2015.

maritime helicopter capability to the Royal Canadian Air Force," said Mick
