RUAG Aviation announced at the ILA Berlin Air Show the sale of a Dornier 228NG to an unnamed Asian customer, for delivery in passenger configuration in the second half of next year. This brings to six the number of orders RUAG has received since launching production of the upgraded aircraft two years ago.
At the end of August RUAG delivered a Dornier 228NG to Germany’s naval squadron 3 “Graf Zeppelin” in Nordholz. The aircraft, equipped with special missions reconnaissance equipment, will carry out daily patrols over the North Sea and Baltic Sea for the Federal Ministry of Transport. It joins another Dornier 228NG in helping prevent marine and other environmental pollution, and in responding to threats to the environment such as major shipping accidents.
