I'm looking for data, 3-line drawing and pictures about small unknown transport airplane which was used for oil industry or difficult conditions ( as Alaska for example). It wasn't produced, probably.
characteristics:
- one turbopop engine,
- very simple shape : rectangular wings and tail fins,
- rectangular cross section ( similar as C-23 Sherpa),
- loading platform from back,
- 3 wheeled undercarriage ( as Cessna Caravan).
 
Do you mean the Ayres Loadmaster ?

Similar shape , but smaller and with simple wings and tail fins ( very simplified shape, I would say coarse) . And project was older ( twenty years ago?) . I think project acomplished status air tests because I seen foto. Production: US or Canada.
 
It sounds very much like the GAFHawk 125. (If so, the sole prototype was later converted from PT6A turboprop to an ASz-62 radial engine - see http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1070.msg23277/highlight,gafhawk.html#msg23277
