Tailor-Made for CRJ200 Conversions, New Auxiliary Fuel System Offers
Superior Range and Increased Cabin SpaceMONTREAL, Jan. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - MJET, an Elisen Company, providers of
integrated engineering, completion, customization and maintenance services for
commercial and business aircraft, today announced a new addition to its
VIP CRJ200 conversion offering with the introduction of the Elisen Elite
Auxiliary Fuel System (AFS) 500.
Exclusive to MJET, the Elisen Elite AFS 500 allows for significantly
greater range by providing 4,500 lbs of auxiliary fuel - approximately 12%
more than the capacity of the auxiliary fuel system offered for the Bombardier
Challenger 850 or a similarly configured CRJ200. Even with increased fuel
capacity, an MJET VIP configured CRJ200 offers an additional two feet of
usable cabin space, which extends the flexibility of design potential and
allows for unprecedented comfort and luxury. For example, the addition of a
second lavatory adjacent to the cockpit is now possible without compromising
other amenities (the passenger lavatory is located aft).
"Based on simple, reliable and robust 'clean sheet' design, the Elisen
Elite AFS 500 is specifically engineered to interoperate with the CRJ200's
existing fuel system," said Taif Rahman, Executive Vice President, Elisen
Technologies. "The location of our tanks does not compromise the aircraft's
center of gravity. Optimized design and a weight reduction exercise make this
major aircraft modification for extra fuel possible without increasing the
aircraft's weight or reducing its useable payload. The Elisen Elite AFS 500
complies with the latest FAA and EASA requirements, including SFAR 88
paragraph 25.981," Mr. Rahman added.
"We are pleased to be actively pursuing the VIP CRJ200 conversion market
with a superior engineering and interior completion solution," said Stéphane
Durand, President, MJET. "By directly responding to market demand, our unique
proposition simultaneously extends range while increasing usable cabin space.
This market is a natural fit for MJET given the expertise that our permanent
team has in both business jet completions and CRJ engineering work,"
Mr. Durand concluded.
Full FAA and Transport Canada certification of the Elisen Elite AFS 500
is scheduled for Q4 2008 and worldwide customer deliveries are to begin
