Download PDF for this date

Israel Aircraft Industry, Ltd, will double its production next year, it was announced today. The company’s plans call for two “Arava” and two “West Wind” (formerly Commodore jets) per month. The present production is one of each per month. The firm will make an effort to sell the Israeli-made planes in North America and to West European countries in addition to those sold already to Latin American countries. The “Arava” was shown in the Mexican air display last week. The IAI expects exports in the neighborhood of IL 161 million next year compared to IL 82 million this year.
