LM-100J receives FAA certificate 

Lockheed Martin’s LM-100J commercial freighter – a variant of its C-130 Super Hercules aircraft – has received a type certificate from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). 

This particular FAA certification allows the LM-100J to operate from any commercial airfield in the world, said Lockheed Martin

“This updated FAA certification enables the LM-100J to literally go anywhere in the world to fulfill the unique and demanding requirements it was built to support,” added Rod McLean, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin's air mobility and maritime missions business. “As the LM-100J enters into service, we are proud that it will continue to exemplify and expand the already unmatched capabilities of the C-130J Super Hercules family.”

According to Lockheed Martin, the LM-100J is an ideal airlift solution for the delivery of bulk and oversize cargo. 

In 2020, two LM-100Js will be delivered to Pallas Aviation, which will be the first commercial freighter operator of the aircraft, as HLPFI reported here
