November 2004: Purchased DC-10-30CF, ex-United Airlines (UAL) for the KLu (RNethAF) (RNE).

June 2013: Fokker Services successfully completed the (K)DC-10 Cockpit Upgrade Program (“CUP”) for the Royal Netherlands Air Force (“RNLAF”) (RNE), a key milestone as this is the 2nd upgraded aerial refueling tanker to come into operation.

In 2005, Fokker Services signed the agreement with the Defense Materiel Organization (“DMO”) who managed the modification of the DC-10 (transport airplane) and 2 (K)DC-10’s (aerial refueling tanker) for (RNE). Fokker Services partnered with Boeing (TBC) for the design to enhance the (K)DC-10’s to meet the current and future requirements of the civil aviation regulations to operate and access global air space and meet demanding current and future military mission requirements.

The 1st airplane (DC-10) was re-delivered on April 2011 after completion of a development phase by Fokker and Boeing (TBC) to integrate next generation technology (avionics) which meet the (RNLAF) system requirements. As the design for the 2 tanker airplanes contained minor variances compared to the DC-10, the modification was accelerated, which resulted in re-delivery of the remaining 2 airplanes within 18 months.

“The (CUP) was a challenging program, though Fokker performed well on the installation and testing. This is reflected in the very short modification time for the 3rd and last airplanes, and I am happy to also see this airplane in operation again” said Defense Materiel Organization (KLTZE), A J Sleijster (K)DC-10 Program Manager.

The upgraded airplanes operate from Air Force Base Eindhoven, and are deployed under the European Air Transport Command (“EATC”) who enhance the combined operational capabilities of Participating Nations and improve the effectiveness and efficiency in conducting air transport, air-to-air refueling and aeromedical evacuation missions.

“Fokker Services is proud to announce the completion of this complex program for the Royal Dutch Air Force. We thank Boeing (TBC) for their contribution, as we maintain a close working relationship and our Defense partners for excellent cooperation”, said Michiel van der Maat VP Defense Programs, Fokker Services.
