The Australian Defence Forces' remaining Government Aircraft Factory Nomad utility aircraft have been transferred to the Indonesian navy. The 20 aircraft include two "stretched" N24s, modified with VIP interiors by Brisbane-based Jetcare, the maintenance and engineering division of Flightwest Airlines. Australia declared the type unsuitable for its requirements when operational restrictions, resulting from structural problems, including the banning of full-flap operation, barred the Nomad's use in short take-off-and-landing roles. The aircraft have since been in storage. The Indonesian navy will add them to its existing fleet of 18 Nomads.
