  • Japan stalls future fighter demonstrator

    News | 20 Oct 1998 23:00

    <p>The Japan Defence Agency (JDA)has postponed plans to start work on a future fighter demonstrator next year, as it struggles to complete development flight testing of the new Mitsubishi F-2A/B support fighter by the end of 1999. </p> <p>The JDA's Technical Research and Development Institute (TRDI) had wanted to start work next year on the twin-engined demonstrator, variously designated as FI-X or TD-X. The aircraft, which was intended to fly by 2007, will test stealth, flight control and thrust-vectoring engine technologies. </p> <p>The 9m-long (29.5ft) demonstrator is seen as the possible basis for a future indigenously developed replacement for the Japan Air Self Defence Force's Mitsubishi-built McDonnell Douglas F-4J, and eventually its Boeing F-15EJs. The JDA had originally estimated the programme would cost some ´100 billion ($840 million). </p> <p>The TRDI has been funding work on an 11,200lb-thrust (50kN) demonstrator engine by Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries (IHI) sinhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Japan-stalls-future-fighter-demonstrator-44062/

However, Fukatsu had other things on his mind: he was announcing that ANA had signed a contract with the proposed startup carrier Skymark Airlines. </p> <p>Under the deal, ANA will provide technical assistance and help the newcomer procure aircraft and prepare the necessary documents so it can apply to the Ministry of Transport (MoT) for a licence to operate; it hopes to be flying by Spring 1998. </p> <p>Even though Skymark is a potential competitor, Fukatsu says ANA is providing support because of growing public sentihttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/A-race-to-market-3278/
