Over the next few days, Leonardo will attend the CANSEC fair to showcase its best solutions for search and rescue, pilot training, advanced electronics and see for local partnerships based on security and defense needs. CANSEC will take place in Ottawa, Canada, from 29 to 30 May 2019.

Leonardo has a solid presence in Canada built over 50 years ago. The italian aerospace company supplied the nation with AW101 Cormoran helicopters for search and rescue services, air traffic control and weather radar and integrated communication systems. Recently Leonardo has also opened a new local branch, Leonardo Canada, to further improve the services offered to Canadian customers. At CANSEC Leonardo will show its best products like the M-346, the TH-119 helicopter and a very interesting preview, an M-345 in the Snowbirds livery.

The Snowbirds are the aerobatic team of the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and have the important task of showing the capabilities of Canadian force personnel. The team flies the CT-114 Tutor and is now the only RCAF squadron to be equipped with the 60-year-old jet trainer. Previously the Tutor was in service at the RCAF flight schools, then it was replaced by the modern CT-156 Harvard II and CT-155 Hawk aircraft purchased under a leasing contract in 2000. It is desirable to think that the RCAF will soon introduce a new plane for its aerobatic team. The M-345 is a good candidate both for its excellent aerobatic skills and for the support that Leonardo can offer the nation. Moreover, the M-345 will soon become part of the Frecce Tricolori, one of the most performing and acclaimed display teams in the world.
