he C-130J fleet consists of 12 aircraft and one Level 5 simulator. The C-130J is supported by two prime performance based contracts. Australian Aerospace provides intermediate and deeper level maintenance, logistics and engineering support, and Standard Aero provides propulsion system support.

During 2014-15, the focus will be on transitioning to the new performance-based contract for propulsion system support, certifying the new carbon brake and wheel assemblies that aim to deliver improved performance and reduced maintenance overhead, and further reforming the aircraft maintenance program to deliver greater aircraft availability to the operational squadron. Work will also continue on the next Block Upgrade under AIR 5440, aimed at improving operating efficiencies and enhancing navigation precision in line with emergent global air traffic management standards, in conjunction with our C-130J Joint User Group Partner Nations and Lockheed Martin
