QUOTE: Iran Aircraft Mfg. Company (HESA) is negotiating with Armenia over the sale of 3 Iran-140 turboprop aircrafts
Iran-140 offers certain advantages that compensates for the larger capacity of jet planes and presents the buyers with more profitability in the long run
turboprop consumes 500 to 600 kgs of fuel per hour compared to 2.2 tons of Fokker 100’s consumption.
the contract to sell 3 Iran-140s at the cost of $27m to Sudan will soon be going into effect
What exactly is the Iran-140? Did the Iranians develop it themselves? How does it look like?
Is it still in development or already flying? How many are on order and, if flying, how many are delivered? Which airlines are flying it or are going to fly it? Only Iranian airlines?
