​Philippines receives two NC212i transports from Indonesia

The Philippines air force has taken delivery of two Indonesian Aerospace produced NC212i tactical transports.

The two aircraft were delivered to Clark Air Base outside of Manila, says Indonesia’s defence ministry.

The ferry flight from the IAe’s factory at Bandung took four days and involved three stops.

The aircraft were originally slated for delivery in 2017, but this was delayed, reportedly owing to issues with the autopilots aboard the two aircraft.

In April 2013, Airbus Defence & Space (then Airbus Military) entered a deal with IAe to develop the type, an upgraded version of the C212 tactical transport. The two companies first announced plans for the NC212i in November 2012.
