German firm Aerodata will modify an Embraer Praetor 600 business jet to perform flight inspection work for South Korea’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT).
The aircraft will be delivered to Aerodata in 2022, which will install the systems and equipment required for the work with MOLIT, says Embraer.
“The contract with Aerodata also includes training for both pilots and mechanics and an initial support package for the final end-user. The aircraft will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, such as head-up displays, high-end communication systems, paperless operation capability, and additional customised interior features.”
The company notes that this is the first time it has sold an aircraft for the flight inspection mission outside Brazil.
“The fully-configured Praetor 600 Flight Inspection Aircraft will be a state-of-the-art platform able to perform a wide array of flight inspection tasks in the modes of site survey, surveillance, commissioning inspection, periodic inspection, any special inspection, procedure validation, and ADS-B airborne checks.”
