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.
