PT Regio Aviasi Industri (RAI) sudah mendapatkan pesanan 155 unit pesawat R80. Meski pesawat yang masuk dalam Proyek Strategis Nasional (PSN) baru dijadwalkan uji coba dan terbang perdana pada 2021.

Adapun pesanan datang dari PT National Aviation Management (NAM) Air sebanyak 100 unit, PT Trigana Air 20 unit, PT Kalstars 25 unit dan PT Aviastar 10 unit. "Sudah ada 155 unit R80 dipesan melalui LOI (Letter of Interest)" kata Komisaris PT RAI, Ilham Habibie dalam keterangannya, Rabu (15/2/2017).

Uji coba dijadwalkan selesai pada 2023. "Tahun 2021 awal first flight. Tahun 2022 akhir, paling lambat 2023 awal sudah selesai pengujian terbang dan sertifikasi nasional," terang putra Presiden RI ke-3 BJ Habibie itu.

Tahap awal pembuatan pesawat R80 akan dilakukan di Bandung hingga terbentuk beberapa bagian yang tinggal dirakit. Selanjutnya, proses akan berlangsung di Kertajati, Majalengka, Jawa Barat. Lokasinya di kawasan industri Aerocity Bandara Kertajati atau dikenal dengan Bandara Internasional Jawa Barat. "Di Bandara Kertajati akan ada semacam industrial park. Jadi kawasan industri ada bagian khusus industri dirgantara," tutur Ilham.

Saat ini, proses pembangunan kawasan industri dirgantara di Kertajati masih dalam tahap pembebasan lahan. Lokasi perakitan pesawat di kawasan industri Bandara Kertajati dipilih agar proses uji coba lebih mudah. "Letaknya langsung di situ, kalau buat pesawat kan harus tinggal landas," pungkas Ilham.
