Air­bus Mil­i­tary and PT Dir­gan­tara In­done­sia (PT DI) have signed an agree­ment cov­er­ing the devel­op­ment plan for the NC212i light util­ity trans­port air­craft.

The agree­ment, signed at the LIMA Air­show in Langkawi, Malaysia by PT DI CEO Budi San­toso and Air­bus Mil­i­tary CEO Domingo Ureña-Raso, rat­i­fies and de­tails the joint devel­op­ment, man­u­fac­tur­ing, com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion and sup­port work­pack­ages for the new NC212i launched in Novem­ber 2012.

Un­der the terms of the agree­ment, the com­pa­nies will be long-term, risk-shar­ing part­ners with en­gi­neer­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing be­ing led by PT DI, sup­ported by Air­bus Mil­i­tary, and cer­ti­fi­ca­tion be­ing an Air­bus Mil­i­tary re­spon­si­bil­ity. The air­craft will be de­liv­ered from Ban­dung, in In­done­sia and will be pro­moted and sup­ported by PT DI and Air­bus Mil­i­tary teams world­wide.

The NC212i is a devel­op­ment of the Air­bus Mil­i­tary C212-400 as a highly com­pet­i­tive and ver­sa­tile trans­port for both civil and mil­i­tary cus­tomers with new dig­i­tal avion­ics and au­topi­lot sys­tems, and a new civil in­te­rior for 28 pas­sen­gers rather than the cur­rent 25. It will be EASA and FAA FAR 25 cer­ti­fied.
