Rwanda to receive two MEDEVAC aircraft for Africa UN missions in 2022

by Gareth Jennings

Rwanda is to receive two new aircraft in 2022 that will be used for medical evacuation and light transport missions during international peacekeeping operations throughout Africa, it was disclosed on 24 June.

A Foreign Military Sales (FMS) notification issued by the US Air Force (USAF) said that ATI Engineering Services LLC of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, has been awarded a USD10.1 million contract for Rwanda Cessna C-208 EX Grand Caravan aircraft acquisition.

The award, which includes a flight training device and other support, will see the aircraft delivered by 31 July 2022.

Janes first reported in 2018 that the USAF was looking for a pair of single-engined propeller-driven aircraft for the Rwanda Air Force (Force Aerienne Rwandaise: FAR) for United Nations deployments in the Central African Republic, Sudan, South Sudan, or other locations in Africa.

While no type was disclosed at that time the performance parameters as set out by the USAF strongly suggested the Grand Caravan would be selected. These parameters and specifications comprised a current commercial design with a maximum all-up weight of 12,500 lb (5,670 kg), newbuild, fixed landing gear, and featuring a high-wing configuration for maximum pilot visibility of the ground.
