An Overview Of C-130

The C-130 Hercules is highly known as the most versatile utility aircraft ever constructed. It’s built with four turboprop engines, huge straight wing, and a variety of cockpit windows to offer a high level of safety, efficiency, and swiftness. The construction of this aircraft can be modified quickly, even in distant places, to suit different forms of projects.

The Hercules can work from more airfields compared to any other airplanes of the same size. This is possible because of its high wing and light footprint which keep its landing gear from going down into soft surfaces commonly face at uncleared strips and tiny airports. Loading and unloading become easy with its low cargo floor and rear loading ramp.

IAR offers C-130 fleet support at the facility situated at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona. The company offers its operators all facets of support including line maintenance, structural inspections, and modifications.
