The Finnish Air Force has officially announced today that the Minister of Defence has signed the decision to select the EADS CASA C-295 as a tactical transport aircraft. The contract, that will be signed next week, includes the acquisition of two (2) aircraft and five (5) options.

These C-295 will replace the Fokker 27, which are currently in service and close to the end of their operational life.

This decision finalizes the rigorous selection process that took a year and a half, including two in-flight evaluations, in cold weather, in the Finnish Artic area, as well as in hot weather summer conditions in the South of Spain.
