FWSAR Training Centre

In August at the Vancouver Island Aerospace Association Innovation forum, representatives of Team Spartan, including Alenia Aermacchi director Roberto Leva and Ian McIntyre, training solutions specialist for DRS Technologies, announced the team's plans to establish a FWSAR training centre at 19 Wing Comox as part of the team's program bid.

The Comox Valley Economic Development Society (CVEDS) expressed the importance of the FWSAR program for the region, as noted in the Comox Valley Echo.


Team Spartan exhibited with Finmeccanica North American and DRS Technologies Canada during DEFSEC Atlantic 2015. The show took place on Wednesday, September 9 and Thursday, September 10 in Halifax, Nova Scotia and is one of Canada's premier tradeshows and the second largest even of its kind in Canada.

AIAC Summit

Team Spartan will be in Ottawa in November for the 2015 Canadian Aerospace Summit, which is held at the Ottawa Shaw Centre from 17-18 November. The theme of this year's show is "The Sky is the Limit." We will be exhibiting at the GD Mission Systems - Canada booth.
