PAL Aerospace and PAL Airlines, in partnership with ACOA and ACADA,  will host a series of Supplier Engagement Days across the region throughout October to identify potential product and service providers.  Both EIC companies, PAL Aerospace is a diversified international aerospace and defence company whereas PAL Airlines is a customer service focused airline operating primarily in Eastern Canada.  

Most notably, PAL Aerospace is responsible for the In-Service Support (ISS) of the Fixed Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) aircraft – the Airbus C295W, selected by Canada to replace the aging fleet of CC-115 Buffalo and CC-130 Hercules aircraft.  PAL Aerospace will be responsible for all aspects of the maintenance work not undertaken by technicians of the Royal Canadian Air Force and will include high-value work such as repairs, 2nd and 3rd level maintenance, future modification work, and depot-level maintenance of the aircraft.
