EBACE EXCLUSIVE: First Look at SJ30 in Europe since Emivest Acquistion

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

San Antonio, Texas, USA – Emivest Aerospace’s largest distributor, Action Aviation, is on hand at this year’s EBACE representing the factory, along with Action Aviation chairman Hamish Harding’s own SJ30 on display just in front of the entrance steps to the EBACE static display.

Since the acquisition was announced at NBAA last year, Emivest has provided the necessary planning and capital to improve dramatically the company’s production line and manufacturing processes. Emivest Aerospace is committed to increasing the SJ30 production rate significantly over the next two years and to restructuring the company to improve its build efficiencies.

Joe Gullion, Chief Operating Officer of Emivest Aerospace, commented “We are proud to be able to display at EBACE 2009 what must surely be the best performing light jet in the world. We are especially pleased to increase our visibility in the European market now that we are making real progress on ramping up the SJ30 production line. We are busy at the factory completing the necessary steps on the production line to allow us to meet all our contracted customer deliveries. This progress can be seen with SJ30 serial number 008 as we are about to do the first flight of this first customer SJ30 to be delivered since the acquisition of the company. In addition, we have been hard at work developing our customer service programs to support these early deliveries”.

Hamish Harding, Emivest’s first SJ30 customer in Europe, adds “The SJ30 jet is a joy to fly. With the high-speed cruise of 486 kts (Mach 0.83), a range of 2,500 nautical miles and an operating ceiling of 49,000 feet, the SJ30 jet has truly exceptional performance for a light jet. The sea-level cabin all the way to 41,000 ft also means that pilots and passengers are not as tired from the effects of jet lag as we would be on a long journey in any other business jet”.
