L3 MAS has extensive experience at all three levels of maintenance, with a significant number of highly qualified personnel at Department of Defence (DND) operating bases, and deployed locations, conducting First- and Second-line maintenance activities. In addition, L3 MAS has been performing depot-level maintenance on a number of fleets, including the F/A-18 aircraft for over 30 years, with a focus on delivering high-quality on-aircraft inspections, modifications and repairs at optimal cost and schedule. This is achieved through a solid continuous improvement program involving all stakeholders, including the customer. Over these years, L3 MAS has accumulated an unparalleled 2.8 million hours of F/A-18 depot maintenance work in our Mirabel facilities.
ROBOTICS SOLUTIONS FOR AIRCRAFT STRUCTURAL REPAIRS
One prominent example of this innovation is the use of robotics to address F/A-18 structural defects in a manner that drastically reduces the need for aircraft disassembly, resulting in a significant reduction in turn-around time (TAT).

As the ISS provider for the CC-150 Polaris fleet, L3 MAS manages and delivers services covering all aspects of the CC-150 operations, including line maintenance at home and in deployed operations, heavy maintenance, supply chain, engineering, upgrades, configuration management, program management and quality. Through its subcontractors, L3 MAS provides heavy maintenance checks, aircraft painting and modifications, as well as component and engine repair & overhaul (R&O) services. In short, L3 MAS is responsible for everything on the CC-150 fleet, except flying the aircraft. This includes providing crew to deploy with the aircraft in support of its various missions.
The mission and focus of the L3 MAS team is to deliver absolute mission success. As Canada’s leading In-Service Support provider, our impressive, consistent performance of 98 percent fleet availability continues to be the benchmark for other RCAF fleets.
