Israel Aircraft Industries IAI-201 Arava / IAI-202 Arava

IAI-201 Arava

The Arava first flew on 27 November 1969, and entered production for military and civilian customers in 1972. More than 90 had been delivered by mid-1985.

The standard military version of the twin-turboprop utility transport is the IAI-201. In the transport role up to 24 troops or 16 paratroops may be carried, and machine-gun packs can be fitted to the fuselage sides. Rocket pods may be fitted on two additional fuselage pylons.

The improved IAI-202 has a lengthened fuselage with accommodation for 30 troops, 20 paratroops, 2,500kg of cargo, or 12 stretcher and five attendants, plus a fully wet wing with winglets for increased range. The winglet modification is available as a retrofit on earlier Aravas.
