Cameroon Air Force Orders Airbus Military CN235

Cameroon Air Force Orders Airbus Military CN235

Aircraft Will Be Used To Modernize The CAF Transport Fleet. The Cameroon Air Force has ordered an Airbus CN235 from Airbus Military.

The CN235 is a robust aircraft with a six tonne payload that is well-proven in hot, dusty and humid conditions throughout Africa. It is flexible and reliable with good short take-off and landing capability, and its cabin can be easily reconfigured for a variety of transport missions such as carrying troops, cargo, mixed loads or for medical evacuation. The aircraft will be used to modernize the Cameroon Air Force’s transport fleet.

Versatility, and low maintenance and operating costs were key factors in the Cameroon Air Force´s selection of the CN235, which will be used to modernise its transport fleet.

“Airbus Military is proud to have gained the confidence of the Cameroon Air Force and looks forward to standing by our customer as a trusted partner for many years to come”, said Antonio Rodriguez Barberán, Airbus Military VP Commercial. “The CN235 is exactly the kind of workhorse required for current and future airlift missions to be performed by the Cameroon Air Force and we are optimistic that its in-service performance will lead to further orders from Cameroon.”

With this new order, Airbus has secured 276 orders for the CN235 for 43 operators around the world in both transport and surveillance roles, emphasizing its market-leading capabilities in both sectors.

It is currently in service in 28 countries, operating in the most demanding conditions from extreme cold to hot deserts, and has accumulated more than one million flight hours.
