The Afghan Air Force’s (AAF) C-27 Spartan fixed-wing aircraft has completed 1,000 flight hours since its inception in December 2009.

During the past nine months, the AAF C-27 has delivered critical air force cargo for the Mi-17 mission from Kabul to Kandahar.

During its return flight to Kabul, the C-27 transported nine wounded soldiers and one soldier killed in combat.

In May 2010, the C-27 participated in the first international mission to Pakistan with Afghan Speaker of the Wolesi Jirqa, Mohammad Younous Qanooni, and other dignitaries on board.

The C-27 Afghan crew has also achieved its final qualification before being capable of flying without US advisors.
