CINCINNATI (Sep. 14)
Executive Jet Aviation, Inc. of Ohio, the world’s largest business jet charter service, has announced the purchase of three modified Commodore Jet 1123 business aircraft from Israel Aircraft Industries Ltd. The three jets are to be modified according to EJA’s specifications to allow quick change conversion from passenger to cargo operation within less than one hour.
A company spokesman said he believed that this is the largest single business jet order announced so far this year in terms of the number of aircraft involved. EJA will take delivery of their first 1123 Commodore in about six months.
Earlier this week the Atlantic Aviation Corp. announced it had signed an agreement in Israel with IAI giving AVC exclusive marketing rights in the United States and Canada for the Commodore Jet 1123 planes. The announcement of the purchase was made by Bruce G. Sunblun, president of EJA, during the 25th National Business Aircraft meeting being held here. EJA will also undertake to train pilots and mechanics for all new Commodore Jet 1123 aircraft sold in this country.
