Average age of two A321s transferred are 14.5 years.
Which means it can go on for another 15-16 yrs after which it ought to be de commissioned.

It also makes sense when you consider the fact that given the advances in electronics made every year , you have to upgrade your systems every 8-10 yrs or perhaps even in a lesser time span to stay relevant.

Besides there's a limit to how far one can upgrade ones AEW systems.

25 years easily. Unlike SAAB 2000 platform of which only handful were made 25 years ago. A320 family won't face same problem.

Canadians and Germans are flying A310 today and plan to do so for another decade. That won't be a problem for us.

This incapable, irresponsible government made our fighting forces a leasing force.
