Overview

 
 

Canada’s four CC-177 Globemaster III strategic airlifters were delivered in 2007-2008. The CC-177 in Canada helps provide everything from the rapid delivery of troops and cargo transport to oversized combat equipment from coast to coast to coast and to anywhere else worldwide.

 

Rapid, reliable and flexible, the strategic and tactical CC-177 is equipped with advanced digital avionics, has a maximum range of approximately 5,500 nautical miles and can carry a payload of up to 160,000 pounds (72, 727 kilograms) due to its four engines (Pratt & Whitney 2040 series) that produce 40,440 pounds (18, 343 kilograms) of thrust.

 

To illustrate the power of these aircraft, one CC-177 can haul three CH-146 Griffon helicopters with refuelling tanks, or one Leopard 2 tank, or as many as 102 paratroopers. But perhaps most useful of all, the CC-177\’s ability to fly long distances and land in remote airfields makes it a premier transporter for military, humanitarian and peacekeeping missions.

 

Only 12 days after entering service with the Canadian Forces, Canada’s first CC-177 carried out its first operational mission: the delivery of 30 metric tonnes (30,000 kilograms) of emergency relief supplies, collected by the Red Cross and the Canadian International Development Agency, to the people of Jamaica in the wake of Hurricane Dean.

 

The CC-177 Globemaster III is used for a wide range of strategic and tactical missions for Canada’s Air Force and only requires a crew of three: pilot, co-pilot and loadmaster. Pilots can fly the CC-177 wearing night-vision goggles, which provides a significant tactical advantage when flying into hostile territory. It can also take off and land on unpaved runways as short as 1,067 metres (3, 500 feet) and as narrow as 27.4 metres (90 feet) by day or by night.

 

The CC-177 have been supporting Joint Task Force Afghanistan on Operation Athena in Afghanistan. Since 2007, they have been conducting regular sustainment flights from Canada with the semi-annual rotation of troops in and out of Afghanistan operating on the air bridge between Canada and Afghanistan.
