History

Alenia Aeronautica was created in 1990 by concentrating the Finmeccanica aerospace and defense industries Aeritalia and Selenia. Alenia was immediately associated with Eurofighter and other advanced programs. The present Alenia Aeronautica was incorporated in 2002, when Finmeccanica spun off its divisions as independent companies.

Alenia's C-27J was selected by the US Defense Department as its Joint Cargo Aircraft,[1] and the C-27J team was awarded a contract worth US$2.04 billion for 78 C-27Js in June 2007.[2]
