It has been reported that a total of 17 CF-5s have been sold to a private person in 2008.

Tactical Air Defense Services announced in September 2010 that it had acquired 6 Canadian CF-5
plus 45 General Electric J-85-15 engines from the Canadian Minister of Public Works and Gover-
ment Services; it will offer the aircrafts to governments at an hourly rate of USD 7'500, aiming
to operate each aircraft for a minimum of 200 hours a year; six additional Canadair CF-5D were
registered to Global Aviation International from Jupiter (FL) on 15/16/17 July 2013.
All stored aircrafts have left CFB Mountain View.
