Melbourne, Florida, June 17th 2008 – Liberty Aerospace Inc. announced today that it is seeing increased orders and publicity in the global market as it expands it’s reaches beyond the US.
After making an announcement in late 2007 about a contract for 600 aircraft with 3A in the Peoples Republic of China, Liberty Aerospace, Inc. has began to fulfill deliveries for that order from it’s Melbourne, Florida manufacturing plant. Liberty has seen a large increase in orders for the XL-2 training/touring aircraft in overseas markets.
With fuel and maintenance costs skyrocketing, the XL-2 not only has the lowest fuel burn and maintenance costs of any IFR Certified aircraft, but also has the lowest carbon footprint due to it’s FADEC optimized engine. Given the economic benefits of the aircraft, flight schools and individuals alike from countries like Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, China and other locations throughout Europe and the Middle East have placed orders for the XL-2.
R.W. Burnley, Senior V.P. of Sales and Marketing, for Liberty Aerospace, Inc. said, “Given the escalating cost of fuel, many flight schools are reviewing their choices for primary training aircraft. If we think avgas is expensive here in the U.S., those schools in far-away places are experiencing costs that are sometimes three times ours. This very issue…the cost of continuing operation…is what’s driving the popularity of the XL-2.”
The XL-2 has recently been highlighted at the ILA air show in Berlin, Germany, the Aero Expo airshows in London, England, and Prague, Czech Republic, the Dubai air show, the Singapore air show, and EBACE in Geneva, Switzerland.
