The on-schedule maiden flight of the third prototype Galaxy on 23 September was a further boost to a programme that, after overcoming early production problems, has stuck rigidly to its schedule. The overriding aim now is to get this aircraft, the first built to series-production standard, to the all-important US National Business Aviation Association show at Las Vegas, Nevada, on 19-21 October, before which it must have built up a minimum 50h of flight time in Israel. "We are sure we can do it," says IAI Galaxy programme manager Zvi Genisher. </p> <p>While technical development has proceeded almost without incident since it was launched in mid-1993, the Galaxy programme has been faced with production and

    <p>Israel Aircraft Industries' (IAI) Airtruck specialised cargo aircraft has been selected in principle by FedEx to meet its requirement for a Fokker F27 replace- ment. The Israeli company is struggling to meet FedEx's price demands, however, and is seeking additional customers, partners and investors to enable the programme to be launched. </p> <p>The Airtruck has been designed to meet FedEx's requirement for up to 100 freighters. The high-wing twin turboprop will be capable of carrying five standard size cargo containers over a range of some 1,900km (1,000nm) at a speed of around 300kt (550km/h). FedEx is willing to guarantee the purchase of 100 aircraft on condition that the unit price is no greater than $10 million. </p> <p>A source close to the programme says that, with a planned production run of only 100 aircraft, the unit price will exceed the FedEx limit. Having failed to convince the express carrier to pay slightly more for the aircraft, IAI is now looking for additional cu
