The C-27J is the perfect fixed wing multi-role airlift aircraft for today's complex operating environments. Extremely maneuverable and versatile, the rugged C-27J boasts the highest power-to-weight ratio in its class, and the ability to perform fighter aircraft-like 3.0g force maneuvers - enabling it to make tight turns, and to climb and descend quickly. It can fly farther, faster and higher than any other twin engine military transport aircraft in its class. Its low operating cost makes it an ideal platform in today’s fiscally constrained environment.
