…Sino Swearingen’s New Bizjet Selling…


Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corporation (SSAC), manufacturer of the newly FAA-certified SJ30-2 twinjet, already has piled up 295 sales, the company said last week. The orders add up to $1.5 billion. “Orders are accelerating into the stratosphere,” said company spokesman Gene Comfort. The jet cruises at 487 knots and has a range of 2,512 nm. SSAC promises to have “exciting and spectacular announcements” to come this week at the NBAA show in Florida. The FAA officially handed over the Type Certification for the SJ30-2 yesterday. A full-size SJ30-2 is on display along with a full-size cockpit and interior. Two SJ30-2 aircraft were flown in for the NBAA static display. The new SJ30-2 corporate jet operates at altitudes to 49,000 feet and maintains a sea-level cabin through 41,000 feet. It’s certified for single-pilot operations. The jet is built in San Antonio, Texas.
