  • Description

    The Geneva-based International Institute of Promotion and Prestige yesterday (Monday) conferred on Israel Aviation Industries Ltd., its International Promotion Award. The bronze plaque was presented by the Institute's President, Admiral Jean Emery, Controller-General of the French Navy, to IAI President Al Schwimmer at Lod Airport, in the presence of Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Dayan.

    The award is given to enterprises which through their "activities, work and research effort in relationships and market research abroad, tend to occupy major positions in their domains". Previous recipients in advanced industry have been NASA (USA); Compagnie Generale d'Electric (France); Porsche (W. Germany); Royal Dutch Shell (Netherlands/Britain) Moteurs Baudouin (France); and Formica International (Britain).

    The company's main products are the Avara, an Israeli-designed short take-off and landing (STOL) turbo-prop utility transport, which can carry 20 passengers or two tons of cargo and operate from the most rudimentary of airstrips, and the jet Commodore Eleven-23, a much developed version of the former North American Rockwell Commander.
