Alenia Aeronautica Completing Italian Air Force C-27J Deliveries
GENOA, Italy – The Italian Air Force next month will receive its 12th and last C-27J tactical transport aircraft from Alenia Aeronautica, which delivered the 11th aircraft at the end of February.
The Air Force has assigned nine aircraft to the Pisa-based 46th Aerobrigade and the brigade has so far logged more than 4,500 flight hours in 3,000 flights, including the operational deployment of two aircraft in Afghanistan. Another C-27J is assigned to the Air Force flight-test wing in Pratica di Mare, southwest of Rome, and has flown another 175 flight hours.
