CESSNA, WILL DELIVER the 500th Grand Caravan single-turboprop utility aircraft to Transmile Air, of Malaysia, in mid-August.

The company plans an Asia-Pacific demonstration tour with the aircraft, which was displayed at Asian Aerospace '96 in Singapore, before Transmile places it into service on mail and overnight package-delivery operations.

Transmile operates three Grand Caravans and is Cessna's Caravan sales representative in Malaysia, arranging the sale of six aircraft to the Malaysian police in 1994.
