PARIS, France, June 20, 2023 - De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited (“De Havilland Canada”) today signed an extension for the Maintenance Plus (“M+”) agreement with the Ministry of Defence, Republic of Croatia. Under the agreement, De Havilland Canada will manage component maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services for Croatia’s fleet of six CL-415 aircraft and provide access to De Havilland Canada’s exchange pool. This program was originally signed in 2019, and the extension will extend this term through 2025.

“We are delighted to continue supporting the Ministry of Defence, Republic of Croatia with our M+ program, and we look forward to enhancing Croatia’s operation well into the future,” said Leighton Storsley, De Havilland Canada Vice-President Aftermarket and Business Development. “Our highly customizable M+ program continues to be a predictive and effective solution for the CL-415 fleet, and is designed to allow operators to focus on missionized nature of the business while we take care of their component management requirements.”
