Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 16 June 2009

Project Phoenix cheered the first flight of its high specification Phoenix CRJ No 1 (Serial No 7211) on 12th June 2009.

The aircraft took to the air for 1 hour 10 minutes from completion centre Flying Colours’ facility at Peterborough, Ontario.

 Captain Larry Ross (test pilot) reported a faultless flight saying, “The aircraft handled and performed perfectly with all systems and avionics operational. Our flight engineer reported an extremely quiet cabin.”

The aircraft’s elegant, new 15 seat luxury interior includes a state-of-the-art cabin management systems and IFE, with Airshow 4000, ipod stations and full internet and SatCom communications.

 The aircraft with its clean and stylish interior has been well received by both owner Ritz Pacific and Jet Asia (which will fly the aircraft on its AOC).

Especially pleasing is the aircraft’s operating weight. The Phoenix CRJ will have a payload of more than 1,200lbs with full fuel including the long range auxiliary tank – which equates to six passengers.

 “This is extremely gratifying news and pretty much what we predicted. Well done to Flying Colours for their weight reduction program.” said Project Phoenix President and CEO Mike Cappuccitti.

Phoenix CRJ No 1 has been fitted with Flying Colours own long range fuel tanks, providing a maximum range in excess of 3,000 nm and giving US coast-to-coast capability. Project Phoenix worked with Skyservice at Toronto Pearson Airport on an extensive maintenance program and with Flying Colours of Peterborough for the interior and completions process.

 The aircraft will shortly enter service with Jet Asia in Macau.
