  • Description

    THE FIRST AIRCRAFT DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN ISRAEL, THE ARAVA, WAS GIVEN ITS FIRST PUBLIC SHOWING AND DEMONSTRATION FLIGHT AT LOD AIRPORT YESTERDAY (9 APRIL).

    ALTHOUGH ISRAEL HAS FOR MANY YEARS BEEN MANUFACTURING AIRCRAFT TO OVERSEAS ON MODIFIED DESIGNS, THE ARAVA IS THE FIRST PLANE COMPLETELY DESIGNED AND BUILT THERE.

    THE ARAVA, A PRODUCT OF ISRAEL AIRCRAFT INDUSTRIES LTD WHICH HAS MAINTAINED AND OVERHAULED A WIDE RANGE OF INTERNATIONAL AIRCRAFT OVER THE PAST 17 YEARS, IS A TWIN TURBO-PROP TRANSPORT. ROBUST IN STYLE AND FUNCTION, IT CAN A ACCOMMODATE 22 PASSENGERS OR ALTERNATIVELY TWO TONS OF FREIGHT.

    WHILE LIKELY TO CATER FOR LOCAL AVIATION REQUIREMENTS IT WAS DESIGNED TO BE COMPETITIVE ON THE OVERSEAS MARKET, AND BECAUSE OF ITS SHORT TAKE-OFF AND LANDING CAPABILITIES IS LIKELY TO INTEREST DEVELOPING COUNTRIES WHERE AIRFIELDS ARE SMALL AND UNSOPHISTICATED.
