International governments express interest in the FF5000 Military Variant Aircraft

(FFAC) Freight Feeder Aircraft Corporation announced today that high-level briefings and negotiations are on-going with several international governments for the procurement of the FF5000 Military Variant Aircraft (FF5000MV).

Last week, several Generals and senior officials from the South African Air Force (SAAF) invited FFAC representatives to meet at its Headquarters in Pretoria, South Africa, for extensive briefings of the FF5000MV and its strategic capabilities. These SAAF officials who oversee air transport & maritime systems were briefed about the abilities of the FF5000MV including its Troop Transport, Medevac, Mobile Hospital, Maritime Surveillance, In-Flight Refueling, Equipment and Cargo Transport capabilities.

FFAC and its Associates have also had preliminary discussions with the officials from the U.S. AFRICOM and the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) about the acquisition possibilities of FF5000MV Aircraft.  Several other international governments and humanitarian agencies have expressed interest in the FF5000MV since FFAC's inception in December of 2007.
