For defence, this includes C-390 Millennium transport aircraft and potential specific end-user requirements as well as future fleet support. “Whether it’s the defence market with our support for the C-390 Millennium transport aircraft or any type of Support or Development in Commercial market, we are confident that many exciting projects will arise over the coming years,” said Menzo van der Beek, CEO of Fokker Services.
