Boeing is offering the P-8A Poseidon for the Canadian Multi-Mision Aircraft project

Boeing intends to offer the P-8A Poseidon in response to Canada’s information request (RFI) for long-range marine patrol aircraft. The Canadian Multi-Mission Aircraft (CMMA) project will replace the Royal Canadian Air Force fleet with CP-140 Aurora aircraft and expand its anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and reconnaissance, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities.

Armed with more than 140 aircraft, the P-8 has completed more than 400,000 hours of flight around the world without accidents. Soldiers operating or choosing the P-8 include the U.S. Navy, the Royal Air Force of the United Kingdom, the Royal Air Force of Australia, the Royal Air Force of New Zealand, the Indian Navy, the Royal Air Force of Norway, the Navy of the Republic of Korea and the German Navy.

The P-8 has a lot in common with the Boeing 737NG, which has support infrastructure around the world. Shared supplies and training for crews and maintenance significantly reduces costs and allows military operators to use support around the world. This proven aviation and ancillary infrastructure is the foundation for providing fast, low risk and low cost opportunities for Canada.
