Israel Aircraft Industries

Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) was founded in 1953 as the Bedek Aviation Company in order to maintain Israel Defense Forces (IDF) aircraft. In 1959 Bedek began manufacturing its first aircraft, a V-tailed twin-jet trainer of French design, the Fouga Magister. A French embargo led to IAI developing its own fighter aircraft, a derivative of the Mirage 5 called the IAI Nesher ("Eagle"), in 1968. The first aircraft to be fully designed and built by IAI, the IAI Arava STOL (short take-off and landing) transport aircraft, first flew in 1969. The IAI Kfir ("lion cub") was developed as a result of Israel's need to adapt the Dassault Mirage III to the specific requirements of the Israeli Air Force. n 1969 IAI acquired North American Rockwell's Jet Commander series of business aircraft. This became the basis for the IAI Westwind line. In 2006, IAI changed its corporate name from "Israel Aircraft Industries Ltd." to "Israel Aerospace Industries Ltd."
