PTDI to Deliver Two CN-295s to Indonesian Air Force

The Indonesian Air Force will soon receive two military transport aircraft CN295 from plane manufacturer PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) to replace its retiring Fokker-27 Paratrooper.

PTDI spokesman IP Windu Nugraha said in Bandung, West Java, on Wednesday that Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro would officially take delivery of the aircraft before handing them over to the Air Force on Thursday. “The handing-over ceremony will take place at Halim Perdanakusuma air base,” Windu said.

The two CN295 planes are part of the nine aircraft ordered by the Defense Ministry, the contract of which was signed during the Singapore Airshow in February this year, Antara news agency reported.

The CN295, a joint production between PTDI and Spain-based Airbus Military (formerly known as CASA), was manufactured in Seville, Spain. The aircraft landed at Husein Sastranegara International Airport in Bandung on Sept. 30.

The Air Force plans to operate the CN295 for military purposes, logistics transportation and humanitarian missions across the archipelago.
