His Majesty personally inaugurated it to pioneer this industry and being the first Jordanian and Arab factory to manufacture aircraft globally licensed within the part FAR23, and the JAI company carried out a perfect cooperation with KADDB King Abdullah II Design and Development bureau for ten years contract started 2004-2013 JAI company obtained (Certificate of thanks and appreciation from KADDB). JAI company won the "Dubai Airshow as the Best Arab Aircraft Manufacturing Company" for the Middle East and Africa. The Royal Decree included granting Jordanian citizenship to the founder of Jordan Aircraft Industries and Development Company for the international innovator and investor Muayad S. Dawood Al-Samaraee.

Our company pursued from the first day of its work in Jordan by support the training projects. We supported the work of one of the main Jordanian academies since 2003, we supported them, to buy our unique product, the  Sama-CH2000, the first aircraft manufactured by JAI for training in the Middle East Academy for Aviation Sciences in Jordan, Sama-CH2000 is a high efficiency Aircraft, and a lot of Arab and foreign pilots' trainees, they graduated in this plane, and they registered their flying hours forever on a SAMA-CH2000 aircraft and we have all the pride in it, and what we done. Today, 17 years later, we remind everyone about what we did, and we are proud that there is still are no one in all the countries around within the Middle East and Africa, able to do our success.


·        Transferring industry outside of Jordan

Our company directly blamed the commissioner of the Jordan Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (CARC) for aviation standards during the year of 2012, for having lost the rights acquired for Jordan and our company, and the damage could have been avoided if the commissioner were aware with the aircraft production. Our company has spent millions on the development of its aircraft SAMA-CH2000 aircraft  by making it compatible with (German and French-made engines) and has been under the supervision of the representative of the flight Safety Department since 2006, so that, our company preceded others in its readiness to comply with the requirements of aviation law, and that our company JAI's is the first one in Jordan which cooperated to the European aviation law standard, and the Commissioner for the regulation of aviation standards in (CARC), (at that time 2012) avoided to negotiate the European side, on how to integrate the laws of the aircraft industry in Jordan with the European ones, since Jordan in general Is focused in the implementation of a quiet transformation of aviation law for the success of the work of passenger transport companies and aviation services and licensing of Queen Alia International Airport exclusively.


To get free of this challenge of JAI's, the commissioner of the Jordan Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (CARC), decided for (temporary) cancellation of JAI production and type certificates, because our presence enters (CARC) within the requirements of delaying the transfer of Jordanian aviation law from the American standards to the European one. Because of this the dispute with the Commissioner of (CARC), the Investor Muayad Al-Samaraee filed an objection filed by JAI company through Al-Rai newspaper because of the damage suffered by our company. Note: that the law does not allow this for CARC Commissioner, but decided to exceed his limits of authority, and asked our JAI company later on to announce that the dispute with the Jordan (CARC), has been removed through the same newspaper, and assured us that what happened to our company was only a formality of the (CARC), because Jordan, once follow The European aviation law, practically that has completely dispensed the aircraft industry. Also that our company should not forget what has been provided to it during the previous years (10 years) and that everyone in Jordan will not forget, what JAI's company, that provided an very unique technologies to Jordan, and that the interest of our company must limited to move outside of Jordan. The (CARC) commissioner told to JAI owner (Muayad Alsamaraee) he is obliged to do what he did, and the (CARC) commissioner, said cannot explain any more. And Jordan does not feel guilty towards JAI's, but vice versa, Jordan feels like the father, and try's to sends his son for an high education in Europe. Please accept the harshness of (CARC), regarding to our dealings with JAI's company, because the motive for JAI's benefit, and that of Jordan... (CARC) commissioner message is over.
