JAKARTA - Ilham Akbar Habibie honestly said that he deliberately stopped the R-80 aircraft manufacturing program which he initiated with his late father BJ. Habibie. Previously, when he was still working at IPTN (Indonesian Aircraft Industry), which has now changed its name to PT. Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI), successfully flew the N250 aircraft. Now through PT. Regio Aviation Industry (RAI) Ilham is trying to realize this project. However, because it requires quite a lot of funds and support from the government, this project had to be postponed. “I have temporarily frozen the R-80 project. I want to see first whether the new government has support or not, because the current government does not have support. We don't have the money to handle a project as complex as the R-80 ourselves," he admitted to VOI.
