Airbus Military and PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PT DI) have signed an agreement covering the development plan for the NC212i light utility transport aircraft. The agreement, signed at the LIMA Airshow in Langkawi, Malaysia by PT DI CEO Budi Santoso and Airbus Military CEO Domingo Ureña-Raso (see photo), ratifies and details the joint development, manufacturing, commercialisation and support workpackages for the new NC212i launched in November 2012.

Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will be long-term, risk-sharing partners with engineering and manufacturing being led by PT DI, supported by Airbus Military, and certification being an Airbus Military responsibility. The aircraft will be delivered from Bandung, in Indonesia and will be promoted and supported by PT DI and Airbus Military teams worldwide.

The NC212i is a development of the Airbus Military C212-400 as a highly competitive and versatile transport for both civil and military customers with new digital avionics and autopilot systems, and a new civil interior for 28 passengers rather than the current 25. It will be EASA and FAA FAR 25 certified.
