Bombardier Defense and General Dynamics Mission Systems-Canada working closely with the Canadian government will deliver the new Multi-Mission and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) aircraft that it will deliver the aircraft per required by the Canadian government for the CMMA (Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft) program. 

The long-standing companies from Canada are shipping on the bandwagon to give in their expertise to prepare the success in a competitive, transparent procurement process, and are coming together to secure the tender for Canada’s Multi-Mission Aircraft. 

Why Bombardier Stands Out? 

The Canadian company stands out not because it is Canadian, but has a long and successful track record in delivering multi-role specialized aircraft across the world. Bombardier’s Defence product shines above other competitors in the realms of special mission aircraft providers, using namely the Global 6500 aircraft as the main platform.

The Global 6500 is a modern, efficient, and agile aircraft. It is perfectly sized for the CMMA propelled by its new-generation engines, with the ability to fly 6500 nautical miles, high endurance, and speed with a proven track record.

In addition, the Bombardier jet is highly green and fuel efficient, with the recently published Environmental Product Declaration. 

The ‘Global’ Family

Bombardier’s flagship or long-range products are called Globals. The Global family of aircraft is the platform for numerous multi-mission roles, that are able to perform any tasks demanded by the operators.


Its capability of performing any mission comes from its remarkable engineering, namely from its payload, speed, range, endurance, and world-renowned 24/7 worldwide customer support. 

Mission Ready 

The aircraft will be equipped with its General Dynamics which is considered world-class in its integrated missions systems, supported directly by the investment of the Canadian government, in the newly overhauled and modernized CP140 Block IV and CH-148 Cyclone.

This new equipment is proven to be mission ready and is very reliable; suitable for the risks that Canada faces in the 21st century. 

Jean-Christophe Gallagher, Executive Vice-President, Aircraft Sales, and Bombardier Defense stated: “Canadians deserve a leading-edge fleet for their Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft program. Bombardier is eager to take on this opportunity to deliver a state-of-the-art platform.” 

“This is a generational opportunity for a Canadian company to leverage its Made-In-Canada Global 6500 aircraft, renowned for their outstanding performance and customized mission enhancers for each client. Having Bombardier work on CMMA,”

“is the right choice from an aircraft performance standpoint and an opportunity for Canada to foster innovation, bolster its capabilities, and support talent across Canada’s aerospace industry from coast to coast to coast.”

Joel Houde, Vice President, and General Manager, of General Dynamics Mission Systems–International furthered: ”For decades, General Dynamics has been proud to provide solutions to Canada’s defence requirements.”

“This new partnership unlocks a generational opportunity to couple our leading edge, trusted mission systems to ultimately provide a made-in-Canada solution that supports Canada’s multi-mission airborne needs into the future while creating a readily exportable capability that will benefit Canada in so many other ways.” 

Bottom Line

The awarding of Bombardier’s contract to supply Canada’s CMMA could be easily considered a ‘golden spoon’ contract, as Bombardier is Canadian.

The expertise and the incredible team of Bombardier, along with the talented Canadian company form the most viable economic and social benefits for this contract.
