C-17A Globemaster cross-servicing agreement with United States

The United States and Australia have agreed on a cross-servicing arrangement for the repair and maintenance of C-17A Globemaster transport aircraft.

The arrangement permits C-17A technicians from the United States Air Force (USAF) and Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) to conduct maintenance activities on each other’s aircraft.

Air Vice-Marshal Steve Roberton, Air Commander Australia, said the Aircraft Repair and Maintenance Service Implementing Arrangement (ARMS-IA) will provide greater flexibility to C-17A operations.
