  • 'Sports car with wings' Paris twinjet in shared-ownership comeback

    News | 14 Nov 2006 00:00 | Guy Norris

    <P>A 50-year-old "very light jet" is enjoying a renaissance thanks to a shared-ownership programme that is offering refurbished and upgraded Morane-Saulnier MS760 Paris twinjets. With bases in Toronto and Orlando, JetSet has just taken delivery of its third MS760x Paris Jet under an agreement with restorer Your Aircraft Source (YAS) covering 20 aircraft, with options for a further 10.</P> <P>JetSet is selling shares in the four-seat jet in increments of 25h for a 1/16th share, costing $60,000, with a target of five owners per aircraft. The management fee is $1,000 a month and operating charge $1,000 an hour. </P> <P>Founder and president Ed Furtak says he chose the Paris - designed as a trainer - because it is easy to fly. "It is a sports car with wings," he adds.</P> <P>JetSet requires owners who plan to fly the aircraft themselves to have at least 700h total time in type-rated aircraft and 25h in the Paris - preferably 50-100h - logged by flying with a mentor pilot. </P> <P>Suppohttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Sports-car-with-wings-Paris-twinjet-in-shared-ownership-comeback-210576/
  • Paris jets to be restored

    News | 12 Jul 2005 00:00

    <P>US engineering specialist Your Aircraft Source is attempting to certificate a glass-cockpit version of the Morane-Saulnier MS760 Paris II light twin jet, aimed at owner-flyers.</P> <P>Twenty of the four-seat jets are being restored by the Calhoun, Georgia-based company. Production of the MS760 ended in 1964 and the type was retired by the French armed forces in 1997. The aircraft is powered by two 1,060lb-thrust (4.7kN) Turbo&shy;meca Marboré VI C turbojets. Maximum speed is 375kt (695km/h) at its ceiling of 25,000ft (7,580m) and initial climb rate is 2,460ft/min(12.3m/s), making it ideal for the owner-flyer wanting a performance jet with low maintenance costs, says the company. </P>http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Paris-jets-to-be-restored-200243/

    <p>AFGHANISTAN</p> <p>Afghanistan has been wracked by war for decades. The Islamic Taliban controls about two-thirds of the land-locked, mountainous country. Areas in the north are held by an alliance led by General Ahmad Shah Masoud. Fierce fighting frequently breaks out in and around Kabul, in the north-eastern provinces of Takhar, Kunduz and Baghlan and in the north-western provinces of Faryab and Badghis. Although 10-12 groups exist, only the Taliban and Masoud's forces lay claim to any air power. The Taliban claims to have captured Masoud's five L-39s, and appears to operate them with its 20-odd MiG-21s and Su-20/22s. Both Soviet-era types are reportedly in Masoud's service as well. Both sides have helicopters, mainly Mi-8/17s, but also Mi-24/25/35 Hinds. Taliban forces also have access to An-24 transports. Casualties continue to be high due to poor access to spares - although Pakistan is believed to aid the Taliban - and a plentiful supply of MANPADS such as SA-7 Grail (Strela 2http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/World-Air-Forces-listing-A-B-58978/
