Approximately sixty aircrew and maintainers from the Royal Canadian Air Force deployed to Peru to take part in Exercise Cooperación III, a multinational disaster relief exercise from 19 April to 2 May 2014. The exercise was held as part of the Government of Canada’s Global Engagement Strategy. The RCAF plays a significant role in this commitment as a member of the System of Cooperation among the Air Forces of the Americas, or the Sistema de Cooperación entre las Fuerzas Aéreas Americanas in Spanish. RCAF aircraft and units included a CC-130J Super Hercules from 426 Transport Training Squadron from 8 Wing Trenton, Ontario, and a CH-149 Cormorant rescue helicopter from 413 Transport and Rescue Squadron at 14 Wing Greenwood, Nova Scotia.
