Airbus Military welcomes Cameroon as new operator

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.

The new Airbus CN235 will revamp Cameroon’s airforce transport fleet.

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.
