Also why is JF17 always shown by AVIC and not PAC??It should be interesting. I wonder if either would co-invest in a joint manufacturing line (turnkey for the airframe is ideal) at Kamra.
So can PAC also take on work for 787??@JamD this was the stuff I was talking about in the $1b export thread. First, it seems the Boeing offset program is still going (would be interested to see if we crossed 25% of the upfront purchase price of the 777s yet), and I think they'll look to extend/expand it with another PIA order soon.
But the second card is interesting, notice how the AW139 MRO project is actually a joint-project/investment by PAC and GASI? But I'm not sure who the heck GASI is though, the only relevant result I keep getting is Global Aviation Service Inc., but in Canada? Anyways, it's small stuff, but I'd expect to see other programs follow the joint-project path, especially the 10-30-seat civil airliner and, probably, ATAK/Turkish Helicopter MRO.
Replacement not anytime soon buddy. 777 is a very successful plane.If PAC wants to do this for regional aircraft. Then I fear it's too late as newer designs are gaining more and more market share.

Cuz thts gonna replace 777s worldwide. Pretty much.
We are manufacturing Helicopters too?View attachment 590339 View attachment 590340 View attachment 590341 View attachment 590342 View attachment 590343 View attachment 590344 View attachment 590345 View attachment 590346 View attachment 590347 View attachment 590348 View attachment 590349
This White guy (below) had been lurking around the Super Mushak Demo for Hours on Day I. I guess he finally got a meeting with the PAC.

No - maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).
You are talking about the red thing in picture?No - maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO).
Anyways, AvRID's target drone program has the potential of being an underrated gem, of course assuming the PAF pushes for further development.
The next step of this thing would be loyal wingman drones (here's a great article on how).
Not to underestimate anything here, a wingman drone would still be a big project in its own right, and is by no means easy (don't want to get "that guy'ed" by @JamD again in 3 days).
But from what I've read, internal target drone research is a great starting point for it. One intermediary step would be improving ALCM development, e.g you develop a larger frame for more range/payload while trying to retain the maneuverability and other benefits of a target drone. From there, you move onto a wingman UAV.
Did you asked about AESA???
All I got was a smile & another "No Comment".Any info on AESA???
Not true, we have a massive JF-17 on display in front of our Pavilion. AVIC/CATIC have a small model.Also why is JF17 always shown by AVIC and not PAC??
No, ofcourse not. I asked in detail. Its basically a MRO in a joint venture with GASI which is a company based in Germany. However all work will be done by PAC.We are manufacturing Helicopters too?
potential is immense with little bit of adoption and modifications it could be put in many use likeAnyways, AvRID's target drone program has the potential of being an underrated gem
so they included the aesa radar and other goodies publicly on a poster and yet refuse to give any information? Lol the most Pakistani thing ever!All I got was a smile & another "No Comment".

Note: Tomorrow the Air Show might be Cancelled. I just a got a message from my kids school at this hour that due to Rain/Dust Storm - all Schools will remain Closed. A rare sight in the UAE. I recall one day of the Air Show getting cancelled 4 Years ago. No biggie, I was planning on skipping it tomorrow anyways, & heading down on the last day (21st).
