Airbus Military has signed an formal agreement with PT Dirgantara Indonesia to develop the NC212i light utility transport aircraft.
The agreement, signed at the LIMA Airshow in Malaysia, outlines plans for joint development, manufacturing and commercialisation of the aircraft, which was launched in November.
Under the terms of the agreement, PT Dirgantara will lead engineering and manufacturing while Airbus Military will take responsibility for certification.
The NC212 is an upgraded version of the C212-400 featuring new interiors, digital avionic and autopilot systems and seating up to 28 passengers. The two companies plan to market the aircraft to both military and civilian customers.
