A Day in the Life of AP-3C

Follow Australian Aerospace during one day in the life of AP-3C

The AP-3C Orion (P-3) is the Royal Australian Air Force's (RAAF) maritime patrol aircraft. Australian Aerospace has been supporting the deeper maintenance of the 18 aircraft P-3 fleet from Richmond Air Base near Sydney since 1993.

Together with the Commonwealth of Australia and British Aerospace, Australian Aerospace formed the P-3 Accord in November 2005. The accord provides upgrades, maintenance and logistics support to the P-3 fleet to ensure effective support until the program withdrawal date in 2018. The accord's main focus is the P-3 Block Upgrade Program (BUP) which is a coordinated series of capability upgrades to the mission systems.
