American Utilicraft’s full-size fuselage mockup arrived in New Orleans on September 11, to be ready for display at the scrubbed NBAA Convention. Under development for 10 years, the FF-1080 is designed to carry six fully loaded (2000-lb) LD-3 cargo containers up to 500 mi or four such containers up to 1,500 mi
Freight Feeder Aircraft supplier Metalcraft Technologies restarted production of detail parts for the FF5000 fuselage in February. The first detail parts are formed exterior skins and the machined floor-section keel beams. The FF5000 is a larger version of the original Freight Feeder design and can fit standard M-1-size cargo containers as well as standard-size pallets.
