The first two aircraft, ordered in December 2013, will be delivered in the first few months of 2015, while the second order will be delivered in 2016 and 2017. The aircraft will be operated by 8th Air Group based at Callao, on the country’s central coast.

The C-27J Spartan was chosen thanks to its ability to operate safely, efficiently and at competitive cost in all operational and environmental conditions in Peru, with the capability tooperate on a large number of airfields, including the unprepared strips in the Andes.

Other than Peru, the C-27J Spartan has already been ordered by the air forces of Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Romania, Morocco, Slovakia and by United States, Mexico, Australia and an undisclosed African country. In total, 80 aircraft have been ordered so far.
