Empire receives first business jet for 2013
Dubai, February 26, 2013
Dubai-based Empire Aviation Group (EAG), a leading aircraft sales and aircraft management specialist and operator of one of the largest fleet of business jets, has taken its first new aircraft of the year under management.
The Gulfstream G450 is an advanced large-cabin, long range business jet and joins EAG’s extensive fleet operating out of Dubai International airport, said a statement from the company.
The aircraft will be managed by EAG on behalf of a private owner for personal use, it added.
The Gulfstream G450 can reach a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.88, and can carry eight passengers and crew up to 8,056 km at the normal cruise speed of Mach 0.80, said the statement.
EAG executive director Steve Hartley said the G450 was a tremendous addition to its managed fleet and a sign of the high level of confidence that aircraft owners have in its team.
"Our aircraft management services are the core of our regional business and we continue to attract new aircraft owners looking for professional management services. The G450 offers great operational reliability and passenger comfort and comes with the strong support of the Gulfstream global network," explained Hartley.
"Large cabin, long range business jets are very popular amongst aircraft owners in the region and they can reach most major global cities non stop," he added.
According to Hartley, the G450 offers intercontinental range, easily linking Dubai-London and Mumbai-Geneva, non stop, and can access high altitude airports.
"The aircraft offers an array of advanced avionics and navigation suite in the cockpit (including Enhanced Vision System and Heads-Up Display) and onboard technology in the cabin, enhancing control for pilots and comfort for passengers – including fresh air and soundproofing," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
