Boeing Will Participate in Canadian Bid 26 February, 2018

Boeing is approved to participate in Canada’s F-18 fleet replacement bid. The company, who fell into a trade dispute with Bombardier last year, is one of five manufacturers invited to submit proposals in 2019 for an order of 88 advanced fighter jets, which are to be delivered in 2025, according to a Canadian government statement. a senior Canadian official said on Thursday that Boeing stands an equal chance with other bidders even though it is locked in a trade dispute with Ottawa.

The other competitors are Lockheed Martin’s F35, Dassault’s Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon and Saab’s Gripen. Boeing will offer Super Hornet for the tender.
