UAE Buys Locally Built Aircraft 22 November, 2019

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will acquire 24 light aircraft B-250s after signing the deal at Dubai Air Show 2019.

The contract costs $ 260 million. It is the first time the UAE has purchased an aircraft that it manufactures domestically.

The B-250 is being developed by Calidus, based in Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with Brazilian Novaer and Rockwell Collins. Aircraft is reportedly designed by Joseph Kovács, designer of the Brazilian Tucano.

The B-250 was first introduced at Dubai Air show 2017 and has also been present at IDEX last February and at the Bahrain International Air show 2018.
