If there was more small regional airports in Turkey, N219 would be very ideal for cargo, as utility aircraft. If amphibious variant is developed. It could land in dam lakes without needing landing strip. Used to travel between coastal cities. Civilian aviation, smaller aircraft is underdeveloped in Turkey despite the potential.
That is right, cargo could be very potential, particularly with the growing of e-commerce. 2 biggest Indonesia Airline, Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air have developed cargo business unit. Before pandemic crush Airline Industry, Lion Air has LOI to buy 100 N 219 which I believe it will be for their cargo business.
