Notes:

Preserved at Italian Air Force museum of Vigna di Valle. The G.212 AV (“Aula Volante”) is the latest model of the successful and very valid series of G.12 three-engined transport aircraft, designed by Eng. Gabrielli and started in 1940. The G.212AV derives from the G.12C, but in comparison to this and to the numerous variations that have occurred over the years (G.12C 1940, G.12T 1941, G.12GA, G.12LGA, G.12RT 1942, G.12RTbis 1943, G.12CA 1945, G.212 CA, G.212CP, G.12LB, G.12LP 1947), has substantial differences including an elongation of the fuselage of 3.30 m and a different design of both the wings and tail. The G.212 is a 1949 version equipped for in-flight instruction: under the fuselage there is a windowed area with two seats side by side for student and instructor and equipped with pointing and photo-sensing equipment. The seats available in the cabin ranged from 26 to 30. The G.212 in the Museum is the only surviving model and also the only Fiat three-engine still in existence.
