The Y8C aircraft is extensively modified on the basis of Y8 prototype aircraft with the non-pressurized cargo cabin converted to all-pressurized one, the cargo doors converted into downward-opening one from inward-opening type and the air-conditioning system modified.
The Y8C aircraft is mainly used for transport, air-dropping and parachuting of cargo, personnel, fresh goods and livestock, etc. The Y8C creates favorable conditions for developing and modifying Y8 series, such as civil airliners or being special-purpose aircraft platform.
The Y8C aircraft is equipped with advanced avionics to ensure all-weather flights and it can also transport 16tons of concentrated cargo, or 20 tons of bulk cargo, or containerized cargo. Ramp-type rear cargo door is convenient for loading vehicles and equipment. The rear door can also be butted with ground loader-unloader to realize quick loading and unloading. The all-pressurized cargo cabin can transport fresh goods, livestock or a thing more than 19 meters long safely for a very long distance.
