INDUSTRY.co.id - Surabaya - PT Dirgantara Indonesia received an order for 20 units of N219 Nurtanio aircraft from PT Aviastar Mandiri which will be used as air transportation equipment and placed in remote areas.

"The N219 Nurtanio aircraft was developed to meet the needs of national air transportation in the pioneer area and can be used for a variety of needs, such as passenger transportation, freight transport, and air ambulance," said PTDI's Commercial Director Irzal Rinaldi in Surabaya, East Java, Thursday (4 / 10/2018)

As a form of commitment, the two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding between the Indonesia Business and Development (IBD) Expo 2018 in Surabaya on Wednesday (3/10).

The agreement was signed between PTDI's Commercial Director, Irzal Rinaldi and President Director of PT Aviastar Mandiri, Muhammad Alvin Reza, and witnessed by Deputy of Mining Business, Strategic and Media Industry, Ministry of BUMN, Fajar Harry Sampurno with PTDI President Director, Elfien Goentoro.

The N219 Nurtanio aircraft is a 19-passenger aircraft with two turboprop engines which refers to CASR Part 23 regulation, whose ideas and design are with program development by PTDI and LAPAN.

This aircraft, he said, has a maximum speed of 210 knots, and the lowest speed reaches 59 knots, which means it is quite low, but it can still be controlled so it is very important, especially when entering the cliff area.

"This type of aircraft is very relevant to the natural conditions in Indonesia, which are generally hilly and many mountains, so it needs an aircraft with low speed maneuverability," he said.

Thus, the existence of this type of aircraft is expected to be an integrated, effective and efficient logistics distribution solution with the hope of being able to improve the welfare of the community.

By PTDI, the same type of aircraft will be produced in stages, ie initially produced six units using existing production capacity, then running an automation system in the manufacturing process, and gradually delivery capabilities will continue to increase to reach 36 units per year.

Meanwhile, PT Aviastar Mandiri is a company engaged in aviation services to remote areas in Indonesia that operate its aircraft in the Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, Nusa Tenggara and Papua regions with a "home base" in Jakarta.
