  • Description

    A new French short-haul jet airline, the Mercure, was unveiled in Bordeaux last week by the manufacturers, the Marcel Dassault aircraft company. The aircraft, which is due to make its maiden flight towards the end of May, was designed and built according to the demands of an extensive market research project carried out among potential users of short-haul passenger-freight aircraft between 1973 and 1980.

    According to Dassault's, the Mercure is highly manoeuvrable; has high degree of noise control; is economic to operate; and can land in minimum visibility - known as Category III (CAT 3.)
