ABSTRACT
The article reports on the delay of the delivery of the new RU-38B turboprop aircraft by the Schweizer Aircraft Corp to the U.S. Coast Guard until 2011 because it must be outfitted for specific surveillance missions. It mentions that the aircraft is intended for low-altitude surveillance over the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. Also, the aircraft was designed as an interim solution to help the service bridge a substantial maritime patrol aircraft flight-hour gap.
