Supporting North American operators
The responsibilities of Airbus Military North America, an EADS North America Company, include commercial sales, support activities and services in the North American market. In particular, Airbus Military North America provides support to C212s and CN235s used in the region for government missions and cargo/air freight services.
Airbus Military North America’s headquarters is located in Herndon, Va., co-located with the headquarters of the EADS North America. Support operations for Airbus Military North America – which include training and spares – are located at Mobile, Alabama, strategically positioning it to support the U.S. Coast Guard’s phase-in of the HC-144A (a version of the CN235) as its new maritime patrol aircraft.
The Mobile facility was expanded in October 2009 to become Airbus Military North America’s Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Delivery Center. This 30,000 square-foot facility provides North American operators of the C212 and CN235 tactical transports with the capabilities of a certified FAA Repair Station, as well as direct support from the aircraft manufacturer.
