Casa now forms part of Eads. See http://www.eads.com Check under "About Military Transport Aircraft".

To the best of my knowledge, Spain uses the CN-235 as a transport. Although a Persuader is available, I don't know if Spain uses this version. Ireland has one at least (see picture at EADS website) and I believe the US Coast Guard was also interested.

For latest news on casa aircraft (particularly the CN-295), check out
http://www.eads.net/eads/en/index.htm

At http://www.mde.es/mde/armas/aire/indiaire.htm , you'll find complete information of the Spanish Ministry of Defence of the actual casa aircraft fleet (Aviones de Transporte).

IPTN of Indonesia also constructed the CN-235, but I don't know for sure which versions. I believe they only did a civil version.

It was a joint programme between Spain and Indonesia, civil and military, though civil versions have sold poorly.
Both those airforces use it, and it's been exported to quite a few other air arms.
Ireland, and some others, use a maritime patrol version, it is also shortlisted for the USCG 'Deepwater' programme.

Colombian Air Force and Colombian Navy use them too...AF has three for over 5 years and Navy has one brand new...
