CCC, DART Aerospace to deliver high lift heliporter to U.S. Navy

The Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) announced it was awarded an indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the United States Department of Defense (DoD) to provide a high lift heliporter designed and manufactured by DART Aerospace Company (DART) to the U.S. Navy.

A high lift heliporter is ground support equipment that allows one person to easily tow, maneuver and transport a helicopter on land. The first heliporter will be delivered by DART to the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD) in Lakehurst, New Jersey, and additional units may be purchased over a three-year period.

With headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, DART has facilities around the world and offers a comprehensive portfolio of aerospace mission-critical equipment, services, replacement parts and tooling for civil and military operators, completion centers, maintenance, repair and operations (MR&O) facilities, and all major rotorcraft original equipment manufacturers.

DART’s heliporters are part of its line of aircraft ground support equipment for helicopters.

CCC is the designated contracting authority for U.S. DoD procurement and partners with Canadian businesses to deliver products, services and solutions to U.S. DoD buyers.

“As a manufacturer of mission equipment and replacement parts, DART offers many products to its global network of helicopter operators and we are pleased to once again meet the rotary aircraft needs of the U.S. DoD,” said Michaël Desjardins-Séguin, business unit manager for parts and accessories at DART Aerospace.

“DART is another example of a Canadian company offering aerospace innovation and we are pleased to support the company in its efforts to provide its products and services to the U.S. DoD,” said Diane Montambault, vice president of contract management and operations at CCC.
