Sabena Technics has won the contract to train AIA, Clermont-Ferrand personnel who will be maintaining the French air force's C-130Hs. The independent MRO will be providing both technical and practical training and simulation services. The agreement has been valued at 1.5 million Eur.

SIAé will be taking charge of all maintenance operations for the French air force's fourteen C-130Hs from 1st July 2018, following a decision made in November. MOC had been provided by the Portuguese industrialist OGMA since 2002, but its services had been judged unsatisfactory, given the low plane availability rate. This rate had fallen to 22.5% in 2016 and had been struggling to reach 28.8% in 2014, according to French Ministry of Defense data.

SIAé will also be in charge of part of the fleet overhaul project, with the installation of modernization kits planned at the same time as maintenance inspections.v
