Airbus Military has delivered the first C295 aircraft to the Ghana Air Force according to a company statement issued 18 November 2011. The aircraft is the first of two C295s ordered by the Ghana Air Force, and the second aircraft will be delivered in the first quarter of 2012. 

According to Airbus Military the aircraft is qualified for the transport of troops, paratroops, medical evacuation, and both palletized and bulk loads, for which it is equipped with a palletized loading system. It will be primarily used for domestic transport and will also play an important role in humanitarian relief missions. Its short take-off and landing (STOL) and rough-field capabilities will provide the Ghana Air Force with access to remote locations that were not accessible previously.

This C295 is the first Airbus Military product that the Ghana Air Force will operate. To date, Airbus Military has sold 85 C295 to 14 different operators.
