May 12, 2008, Montreal – MJET, an Elisen Company, providers of integrated engineering, completion, customization and maintenance services for commercial and business aircraft, has announced the induction of its first Bombardier CRJ200 for VIP conversion incorporating the Elisen Elite Auxiliary Fuel System (AFS) 500. The aircraft will be operated by Corpac Canada Ltd. of Calgary, Alberta.
Following the recent introduction of the Elisen Elite AFS 500, MJET will completely reconfigure Corpac’s aircraft and transform it from a 50-seat airliner into a 15-seat VIP business jet, featuring the addition of a forward lavatory and the integration of the Elisen Elite AFS 500. Designed specifically for the CRJ100/200 series, this system provides an additional 4,500 lbs of fuel.
With 10,696 flight hours, Corpac’s recently acquired CRJ200 (production number 7644) first entered service in 2002.
“We are very pleased that work has started on our CRJ200,” said Roger Cross, Executive Vice President, Corpac Canada Ltd. “MJET has the best conversion program of its kind on the market. With a solid track record in business aircraft reconfiguration and an attractive delivery schedule, MJET will significantly enhance this aircraft by extending range and maximizing usable cabin space,” Mr. Cross added.
“We welcome Corpac as our first CRJ200 Elisen Elite AFS 500 VIP conversion client,” said Stéphane Durand, President, MJET. “Leveraging more than ten years of engineering experience with CRJs and our permanent in-house team of completions experts, we will deliver a VIP-configured CRJ200 that offers superior range with exceptional luxury and comfort,” Mr. Durand concluded.
With final customer delivery scheduled for January 2009, engineering work on Corpac’s CRJ200 commenced prior to the April 5, 2008 induction at MJET’s completion facility. The aircraft will be used for private and charter operations.
