Jets to at­tract those in air med­i­cal or char­ter ser­vices

Pretoria News - - SPORT -

TWO LEARJET 55s – one an air­frame only – will be sold by Park Vil­lage Auc­tions (PVA), at a liq­ui­da­tion auc­tion at Lanse­ria Air­port on Oc­to­ber 25 at noon.

Roy Lazarus of PVA says the sale of the ZS-ELI and ZS-ELJ jets will ap­peal to those in­volved in char­ter and air med­i­cal ser­vices.

“While the one air­craft is con­fig­ured 7/2 for pas­sen­ger char­ter ser­vices, the sale in­cludes Spec­trum stretcher beds, al­low­ing for the jets to be re­con­fig­ured for med­i­cal air res­cue if re­quired,” he says.

ZS-ELI is a 1983 Learjet 55 “air am­bu­lance” pow­ered by two Honey­well TFE 731 en­gines. With a range of about 3000km), the Learjet se­ries is renowned for fuel ef­fi­ciency, speed and per­for­mance. The jet is cer­ti­fied for char­ter op­er­a­tions and fit­ted with the lat­est Traf­fic Col­li­sion Avoid­ance Sys­tem, dig­i­tal flight data and cock­pit voice recorder.

The ZS-ELJ air­craft will be sold as air­frame only but con­tains many spare parts. In­cluded in the auc­tion, as sep­a­rate lots, are a Honey­well TFE731 engine, avion­ics, ra­dios and gen­eral air­craft spares.

“The Learjet 55 was the first stand-up cabin pro­duced by Learjet. With a sep­a­rate toi­let com­part­ment with basin and run­ning water, and a com­pact gal­ley with water heater and oven, this jet can reach all over Africa,” says Lazarus. “The auc­tion is an op­por­tu­nity to ac­quire an air­craft which has been a favourite among cor­po­rates and in­di­vid­u­als since the 1960s, at a very af­ford­able price.”
