Project Profile

  • NATO Flying Training in Canada

    Canada is known far and wide for our peacekeeping contributions and we have the Canadian Armed Forces to thank for that and for keeping our country secure and strong. 

    To support our military efforts, Frontec provides facilities management services for over 104,000 m2 of the NATO Flying Training in Canada (NFTC) military training site, located at 15 Wing Moose Jaw, under contract with Bombardier Aerospace.

    The NFTC trains approximately 140 pilots per year from various NATO countries on Hawk jets and Harvard II turboprop aircrafts. The site supports the high profile international NFTC Program and Canada’s Snowbirds aerobatic team.
