PICTURE: SyberJet launches SJ30i flight-test campaign

SyberJet Aircraft has launched the flight-test campaign for its SJ30i, with the light business jet (N50SJ) making its maiden sortie on 9 October from the airframer’s San Antonio, Texas base.

“We’ve now kicked off the SJ30i’s 18-month certification test programme, which will culminate in an amended type certificate and immediate deliveries in early 2021,” says SyberJet.

The SJ30i is an updated version of the SJ30-2, which was certificated in 2005 by its former owner Emivest Aerospace. Four examples were delivered and remain in service.

The Williams International FJ44-2A-powered SJ30i features a redesigned, lightweight interior and a bespoke flightdeck called SyberVision. Based on the Honeywell Epic 2.0 cockpit, the suite offers a host of features including four 12in displays, SmartView synthetic vision, a moving map display, graphical flight planning and dual flight management systems.
