    The EM-145 is a turbojet plane and I believe the Coastgurad would be interested in a turboprop plane.

    If you are looking for Embraer, then their EMB 120 would fit the bill. It's parameters more than exceed those of the Dornier 228. Other noteable turboprops are ATR42, CASA CN-235 and the Beechcraft 1900.

    The RFI we know but what we want to know is whether the terms are skewed to eliminate some aircraft. it again seems like the terms are so high that only a couple of competitors will be there.

    There is also an IAF requirement for medium sized transport aircraft, The coast gaur should use either this or embraer platform. We as nation are not rich to maintain so many platforms.

    Navy's choice to go for turboprops instead of jet seems to be logical,

    well then there isn't much to decide

    EADS CASA – 295 or C-127j spartan is best option…

    these airplanes can also be considered for HS-748

    single platform IAF and IN HAPPY

    problem solved……….

    C-295/C-27J is buying a Swiss Army knife when you need a screwdriver. The coast guard should stay away from consolidating their order with the IAF/MOD; they'll never get their aircraft.

    An aircraft with max seating of 20 is size enough for the coast guard requirement. Commonality with civilian aircraft will drastically bring down maintenance costs & training. Being pseudo-military, the equipment on-board is not national security sensitive. Buying the right size aircraft will keep fuel costs down allowing the coast guard to have their birds in the air for more time.

    The plural of aircraft is aircraft. Just like the plural of fish is fish, and of sheep is sheep.

    I believe the Navy should stick with DRDO AWE&CS and not go for turbo props. But first DRDO must deliver the first of the three to Air Force. What is the stat of the project? Can you throw some light on that?
    Thanking you in advance.

    Can someone tell the deference ministry not to complicate things for the air force, Navy and the coast guard by bringing multiple types of aircraft for almost the same kind of role.The coast guard should be given the same embarer platform as the air force, as it will be operating it from fixed runways and not from mobile platforms, therefore the tourbo jet or tourbo prop does not matter.

    Most contemporary private jets will be able to proceed without layovers from anywhere in the united kingdom to be able to from any of the Co skiing neighborhoods and will be able to finish the actual knee to be able to Vail without having refueling. A flight from Teterboro, NJ-NEW JERSEY, the international airport on the borders involving Nyc, to be able to Vail really should acquire about four to be able to five several hours, with regards to the jet flown. To get at Vail from anywhere on the Western Coastline need to be underneath three several hours. Aircraft-certifying org
