I was thinking of the BAE Hawk, but I think Canada already has its full complement of these.

Honourable senators, my question for the government leader has to do with ensuring that there are aircraft available for search and rescue in Canada. As the leader will recall, the Minister of Finance promised, almost a year ago, some $300 million to the Canadian Forces to allow them to purchase 15 aircraft within the next 12 to 18 months to replace the aging C-130 Hercules and the CC-115 Buffalo. The Department of National Defence has recently said the procurement to replace the fixed-wing search and rescue aircraft is waiting on the statement of requirements — where have we heard that phrase for the last 20 years — and that that document is waiting for the release of the defence review. Can the minister confirm that this is a proper scenario thus far?

I posted the list of planes we had earlier on a thread but i can't find it. either way we have 104 operational CF-18s with 16 more being used for parts of sorts or in storage.
