The Cn235 provincial aerial shuttle and military strategic transport was composed and created under the Airtech standard as a 50 one model.

The Spanish model flew to start with, on November 11 1983, with the Indonesian based flying machine after on December 30 that year. Certificate by both Spanish and Indonesian powers and first conveyances (from the Indonesian line) happened in December 1986. Section into business administration was in March 1988.

Last mechanical production systems for the Cn235 are in Spain and Indonesia, however all other development is not copied. CASA is in charge of the middle and forward fuselage, wing focus segment and inboard folds, and motor nacelles. IPTN assembles external wings and folds, ailerons, the back fuselage and the tail unit.

The introductory generation Cn23510 was soon supplanted by the CASA constructed Cn235100 and IPTN's Cn235110, fusing Ct79c motors set up of Ct77as, and new composite motor nacelles. Further changes prompted the CASA Cn235200 and comparative IPTN Cn235220 with expanded working weights, better field execution and more prominent reach, with structural enhancements and enhanced heading edge folds and rudder. The Cn235220 was certificated in March 1992. CASA and IPTN now create their Cn235 variations autonomously.

Different variations on the Cn235 topic are the Cn235 QC fast change fit for convey travelers or cargo or both; IPTN's Cn235 MPA sea watch flying machine and CASA's Cn235mp Persuader (which while essentially gone for military clients, have traditions and visitor watch applications); and the broadly requested Cn235 M multirole military vessel. IPTN is advertising military Cn235s as the Phoenix. CASA has created the extended C-295, basically for military utilization.

The Cn235 has succeeded in accomplishing just a little number of business requests, basically from Indonesian and Spanish administrators. Interestingly the Cn235's open inside and back stacking incline has helped it win countless requests.
