CASA C-212 Aviocar (Spain)
   The Aviocar twin-turboprop light utility STOL transport was evolved to perform a variety of military and civil roles, but primarily to replace the mixed fleet of Junkers Ju 52/3m, Douglas DC-3 and Azor transport aircraft formerly in service with the Spanish Air Force.
   The prototype first flew on 26 March 1971 and by 1978 a total of 136 production aircraft had been sold. Versions include the C-2 12A military transport, ordered by the air forces of Indonesia (13), Jordan (3), Portugal (20) and Spain (45 as T.12Bs); C-212AV VIP transport operated by the air forces of Jordan (9) and Spain (5); C-212B photographic survey version delivered to the air forces of Portugal (4) and Spain (6 as TR.12As); C-212C commercial transport accommodating 19 passengers; and C-212E navigation trainer, of which two are operated by the Spanish Air Force. In addition, Aviocars are produced in Indonesia by Nurtanio. A higher-powered, higher-weight version with 645 kW (865 shp) AiResearch TPE 331-10 turboprop engines is under development as the C-212-10.

Иордания приобрела четыре C.212 в середине 1970-х годов - они использовались как легкие транспортные в составе 3-й эскадрильи. На 2013 год в эксплуатации остался только один.
C.212 активно поставлялись в испаноговорящие страны Центральной и Южной Америки. Авиация ВМС Венесуэлы эксплуатирует семь самолетов - четыре транспортных C.212-400 и три патрульных C.212-200S43 Patrullero (на рисунке). Последние оснащены поисковой РЛС Telephonies RDR 1550B и привлекаются к патрулированию, поисково-спасательным операциям и поиску подводных лодок противника. С максимальным запасом топлива продолжительность полета превышает 6 часов.
One of the first customers for the Nurtanio-assembled C-212 Aviocar was Merpati Nusantara Airlines, one of the two aircraft delivered to this operator being seen here.

Большинство C.212 были выпущены на предприятии CASA в Севилье, но более 100 самолетов, NC-212, были выпущены индонезийской IPTN. Данные машины варианта T-12B предназначались для ВВС Испании.

Aviocar в значительных количествах поступил на вооружение ВВС Испании (79 машин). Большинство из них использовались в качестве транспортных, но часть самолетов применялись как поисково-спасательные, морские патрульные и учебные. Сегодня самолеты C.212 стоят на вооружении 721-й эскадрильи, также известной как школа подготовки парашютистов.
Транспортно-десантный C.212 может вмещать 19 парашютистов (на модификации Series 400 - до 24 парашютистов). Здесь представлен вариант NC.212, построенный IPTN для индонезийской армии.

Recent interesting visitors through Glasgow were CASA C.212s for the Dominican and Venezuelan (shown) air arms. FAD-3500 is the first of two Series 400s on order and is named ‘Duarte’ (c/n 468). It arrived with three 212MPAs for the Venezuelan Navy, ARV-0403, seen here, plus 0401 and 0404. These aircraft, together with ARV-0402, later w/o, originally passed through Glasgow on delivery in March 1986.

The accompanying photograph of the CASA C.212 Aviocar STOL utility transport prototype was taken at Le Bourget just before an inadvertent asymmetric reverse thrust selection resulted in a heavy landing and a broken mainspar. The Aviocar had been under test since 26 March 1971, and it is anticipated that a second prototype will shortly join the flight test programme, current plans calling for a pre-series of 12 aircraft with production deliveries commencing in 1973. Designed primarily for military operation, the Aviocar can accommodate 15 paratroops and a jumpmaster or 10 casualty stretchers, three seated casualties and medical attendants. The Spanish Air Force has a requirement for some 50 Aviocars to replace its aged Junkers Ju 52/3m transports.

Almost half of the military transport planes under 10 tonnes flying today are built by CASA. For 75 years at CASA we have been researching, developing and perfecting the most versatile integrated military transport system in the world, making us the authentic specialists. For this reason no one else can offer a range that is so complete, in constant development and adapted to all areas of use.
