"The plan to produce the 15 N-219s has the full support of the government through the ministries of research and technology, industry and transportation," he said.

He said the N-219 was a type of plane vell suited for use in pioneer regions like those in Papua and other eastern Indonesia provinces where the runways of almost all airports were less than 800 meters long.

"The runways of most airports in Papua are less than 800 meters and in some cases even only 400 meters long," Andi said, adding N-219 type planes were urgently needed in the province. (Antara)
