JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - PT Regio Aviasi Industri (RAI) continues to invest in R80 aircraft development. Moreover, the government has included the development as National Strategic Project.
Commissioner of RAI Ilham Akbar Habibie said the company has been developing aircraft products after receiving full support from the Government of Indonesia.
"We have entered the national strategic development with the support of the government," he said in Jakarta, Wednesday (10/11/2017).
According to him, development of these aircraft needs partnership, instead of investment numbers.
"The company we partner with is the one who would build the aircraft, it’s not simply handing us the money," said Ilham who is the son of BJ Habibie.
Ilham Akbar Habibie added that talks with the government to include the development of R80 aircrafts as a national strategic project has begun since last year.
