Grob Aircraft revealed another military customer for the G 120TP turboprop trainer. The Mexican air force has ordered 25 and optioned another 15 in a deal worth about $110 million including ground-based training aids. Indonesia, Argentina and Kenya previously selected the German-built aircraft.
Bombardier is scrambling to develop new production plans for the midsize Learjet 85 after dropping troubled Grob as the supplier of the airplane’s composite fuselage.
The Canadian manufacturer last month terminated its contract for the Learjet 85 fuselage in the wake of Grob’s German affiliate filing for insolvency.
