AeroVision International (Muskegon, Michigan) announces the sale of two fully refurbished ERJ-145 LR aircraft to one of North America’s preeminent professional auto racing teams, which is upgrading its fleet to turbofan-powered aircraft. The aircraft remain in a 50-seat configuration to accommodate the race day crews that travel to and from each race and are painted to a “corporate aircraft grade” standard with a newly designed livery.
The first aircraft was delivered the week of May 11th, 2015, with the second to follow the week of June 14th, 2015, with both immediately entering into service for the remainder of this year’s race schedule. The aircraft will be based at the Concord Regional Airport in Concord, North Carolina.”We are happy to have been able to place these low time / low cycle aircraft with our auto racing customer,” said Jeff Bardal, AeroVision’s Vice President of Engine & Aircraft Sales / Leasing. “The ERJ-145LR is perfectly suited to their operational requirements and will allow them to move their teams around North America farther and faster.”
