Adam Aircraft have started the NBAA show in a very healthy position. Their A500 centerline piston twin has come to the show on the point of complete certification. It is a roomy six-seater that offers pressurized comfort, long range and a sprightly performance.
The A700 Adamjet is also forging ahead towards certification. There are two of the twin-boom VLJ aircraft test flying, with a third in final assembly. The A700 features Williams FJ-33 engines, state of the art electronics, and 5/6 seats with optional lavatory, in a roomy cabin. Adam's order backlog stands at around 400 aircraft, with a worth of $855 million. The A700 was given a timely boost for the NBAA show by an announcement from Magnum Jet of an order for 101 units. Magnum will use the A700 for its new Very Light Jet Ownership and Management program, and future air limo service.
