In The Works: Avocet ProJet

It appears that the ProJet, an Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI)-Avocet joint venture, doesn’t have much forward momentum. Westport, Conn.-based Avocet referred AIN’s inquiries about the twinjet program to IAI. Moshe Zilberman, IAI’s commercial air group marketing director, told AIN that the program “is in stagnation.”

First flight was scheduled for this year and FAA certification was expected next year, though that now seems highly unlikely. Thus, the In The Works chart shows both event dates as “unknown,” since neither Avocet nor IAI would reconfirm the previous estimates.
