Singapore - Grob has delivered the first four G120TP aircraft to the Indonesian air force, with an additional six to come before the end of 2013.
These aircraft are part of an 18 unit, $72 million deal for the type, says the Indonesian air force. The deal was signed in September 2011.
In 2014, Grob will deliver the remaining eight aircraft.
Indonesia will use the turboprop-powered type for elementary and basic training. It will replace the air force’s fleet of FFA AS-202 and Beechcraft T-34s.
Jakarta recently received its first pair of Korea Aerospace Industries T-50i Golden Eagle advanced jet trainers. It is obtaining 16 T-50is, with all of the aircraft to be delivered by February 2014.
