As an archipelago nation, Indonesian commerce and tourism lives and dies by the aircraft. As such, measures have been taken by the government and local industry to invest in equally-local solutions to growing demand and this has revealed a viable indigenous aircraft design, development and manufacturing market. One of the rising products is the N-219, a light utility transport with both civilian and military market potential. The aircraft is based on the CASA C-212 "Aviocar" and first-flown in March of 1971 and produced by Spain (and already operated by Indonesia). Indonesia Aerospace (IAe) is the local concern heading up development of the N-219 which seeks a market target price of under $5 million per unit.

A single prototype has been completed (2017) and entered into flight testing with a first-flight scheduled for some time in 2017.

Like the C-212 before it, the N-219 relies a high-wing monoplane arrangement for exceptional lift and short-runaway performance. The flight deck is aft of the short nosecone with good views out-of-the-cockpit. The fuselage is slab-sided and tapered towards the empennage. The tail unit is made up of a single vertical fin and mid-mounted horizontal stabilizers. The undercarriage is wheeled at all of the legs and fixed in flight. Internally, there is seating for up to nineteen passengers while the cockpit sits two side-by-side.

Dimensions include a length of 54 feet, a wingspan of 64 feet and a height of 20.2 feet. Empty weight is 9,500lb with a Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) nearing 15,500lb.

Power to the aircraft is through 2 x Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-42 engines outputting 850 horsepower each, these mounted under each wing mainplane and driving four-bladed Hartzell propellers (the early alternative was 2 x Honeywell TPE331 series engines but regional availability and cost ultimately won out). Performance includes a cruising speed of 245 miles per hour, a range out to 970 miles and a service ceiling of 10,000 feet. The aircraft will sport a rate-of-climb of 2,000 feet-per-minute and hold strong "hot-and-high" performance capabilities, able to operate from paved and unprepared runways.

As of this writing, the N-219 has secured only local certification with plans to apply for certification abroad - namely in the United States and Europe - in the near future. At least four carriers (all local) have committed to orders of the type to date (2017).

Planned configurations include the standard passenger transport form, a military troop transport, a cargo/logistics hauler, MEDEVAC, surveillance & patrolling and Search and Rescue (SAR).



December 2019 - A first-flight has been recorded of a second prototype related to the development of the N-219. This occurred on December 21st, 2018. Deliveries of a first-batch order are expected during 2019.
