G.222 sale to Afghan Air Forces


“The American choice to re-equip the Afghan Air Forces confirms that the G.222 can still be considered today pride of “made in Italy” and “father” of one of Alenia Aeronautica’s main programs, the C-27J Spartan”, said Giovanni Bertolone, Alenia Aeronautica’s CEO. “This achievement, 30 years after the entry into service of the aircraft, proves the projects’ validity: specifically conceived for military uses, the G.222 still stands out with its excellent performance, reliability, robustness and capability of carrying out the required missions in the most critical operational scenarios; at the same time, Alenia Aeronautica demonstrates itself as “global” leader within the tactical transport aircraft field.”
