Airbus delivers first C295 for Ghana’s Air Force

C295 Military Air Craft

The Ghana Air Force has taken delivery of the first of two C295 aircraft that it ordered from Airbus Military.

The aircraft is qualified for the transport of troops, paratroops, medical evacuation, and both palletized and bulk loads, for which it is equipped with a palletized loading system.

It will be primarily used for domestic transport and will also play an important role in humanitarian relief missions. Its short take-off and landing (STOL) and rough-field capabilities will provide the Ghana Air Force with access to remote locations that were not accessible previously.

“We are very proud to add the Ghana Air Force to our family of C295 operators. The C295, which has proven the best solution for medium sized transport, will allow missions in remote and difficult to access areas. We look forward to the entry into service of this versatile aircraft in the Ghana Air Force”, said Airbus Military Head of Programmes, Rafael Tentor.

This C295 is the first Airbus Military product that the Ghana Air Force will operate.

To date, Airbus Military has sold 85 C295 to 14 different operators.
