New Zealand based Pacific Aerospace has teamed with L-3 Platform Integration to offer its rugged P-750 XSTOL aircraft to the USAF for that service’s Light Mobility Aircraft (LiMA) competition.

“Our team combines the versatility and power of the P-750 XSTOL with L-3’s military systems integration experience, training and integrated logistics support capability,” said James Burkhardt, president of L-3 Platform Integration.

The successful LiMA aircraft will be used in Afghanistan initially by the USAF and then by the Afghan Air Force for carrying passengers and cargo and other utility work, as well as surveillance, agricultural projects and fire fighting.
