It has capacity for a maximum of 13 passengers, most common version was for executive transport uses to be equipped with 4 to 6 seats in a fully pressurized and soundproofing cabin, it has a better ceiling and range than other aircraft of his category, but its capacity to land safely on many runways considered too short for jet operations was its main advantage.

The military designation varies from service to service, but most are called C-12 Huron or UC-12. These are used for personnel transport, and for military intelligence missions.

In Spain apart for executive transport the model C-90 was used as advanced trainer in the National Aeronautics School (ENA), (left cockpit photo), and in the Air Force for personnel transport.
