Airbus Military is pleased to welcome the Cameroon Air Force as a new operator of its aircraft with the delivery of a CN235 medium transport.

The handover makes Cameroon the sixteenth sub-Saharan nation to operate Airbus Military´s family of light and medium aircraft, underlining the range´s suitability for the challenging operating conditions found in the region.

Altogether 61 countries now operate the Airbus Military light and medium family of airlifters and surveillance aircraft – the C212, CN235 and C295.

The CN235 is a robust aircraft with a six tonne payload that is well-proven in hot, dusty and humid conditions and on unprepared runways.

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.

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.
