|Please Save the Michigan C-27J|
Fight to keep the C-27J for our nation, state and community!
In the Defense budget recently delivered to Congress, the Defense Department proposes to abandon the C-27J program. This greatly impacts Battle Creek Air National Guard Base and is the wrong choice for our community, state, and nation. We need to stand together and support the Air National Guard and reinstate the C27J:
C-27J: Best value for the airlift dollar
Compare operating costs: C-27J $2100/hour, C-130H $7100/hour
A robust C-27J fleet in the ANG would allow for a timely, effective response ultimately saving lives
The C-27J is an ideal fit in national strategy
One airlift contract would pay for 14 C-27Js
The cost effectiveness of the C-27J pays for itself and provides highly sought after dual use capabilities for state emergency response and our state partnership program.
