RUAG has promoted its Dornier 228NG utility aircraft to several potential users in Oman, as part of which it has conducted a series of demonstration flights over a three-day period.
Offering the twin-engined type to Oman’s air force, police service and tourism sector in association with local partner Aflag, the Swiss company says it could be used to fulfil numerous roles.
“No other aircraft can perform surveillance flights more efficiently than the Dornier 228. The borders of the Sultanate and the exclusive economic zone can be supervised in the most cost-efficient ways,” claims Philippe Erni, RUAG Aviation’s regional sales director for the Middle East, India, Africa and Asia-Pacific.
