Amir Mokri said today that his company has signed a $9.9 million worth of contract with the German side for the purchase of a flight check plane. He added the purchase includes the plane, a flight information service (FIS) device which is installed on the plane and provides information pertinent to the safe and efficient conduct of flights, as well as some spare parts.
Due to the US sanctions, the German company cannot directly deliver the plane to Iran, he said, adding “as such, the company has said we could place an order with any other company that would be willing to sell the plane to us, and then the German company would take the plane from that seller and deliver it back to us after installing the FIS on it.”
“Right now, we are in talks with a third company for selling us the plane, and we have reached some results,” he added.
Back in December 2018, Head of the Iranian Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Ali Abedzadeh said that the number of Iranian knowledge-based companies entering the air industry has increased in the past couple of years, adding that the development will help the country to counter the effects of the US unilateral sanctions on Iran’s air industry.
