The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has signed a contract to procure "an enhanced squadron" of IOMAX Archangel Border Patrol Aircraft (BPA).
The contract, which was awarded at the end of September, calls for the turboprop aircraft to be built to UAE-specifications to replace the IOMAX AT-802 Block 2 BPAs currently in service. The UAE originally received 24 Block 1 and Block 2 BPAs, of which six Block 1 aircraft have since been donated to Jordan. It is understood that this fleet will now be replaced by 24 Archangel aircraft . janes
