The Red Arrows hit bullseye at SaxonAir HQ

It’s that time of year again!

It always excites us to host the Red Arrows but this year more than most as they are gracing us with their presence, not once… But twice!

On July 20th and August 24th– 25th SaxonAir have the pleasure of hosting the Red Arrows as they use our facilities for commuting to numerous air shows over these periods.

We love hosting the red’s, and to be honest we’re continually flattered by their love of our HQ here at the Klyne Business Aviation Centre.

Being a company of aviation geeks, lovers and enthusiasts it’s also rather exciting knowing we have some of the best fighter jet pilots in the world sat in our lounge!

So if you are local to our HQ in Norwich, keep your eyes peeled this Thursday for some pretty exciting skyline activity over Norfolk…

The weather is set to be fine and dry (but we are talking about British weather, with 4 days to go!) So we expect to see a few friendly faces along the perimeter of the Klyne Business Aviation Centre too.

4 days and counting…. Not that we’re excited….

SaxonAir take delivery of the stunning Embraer Legacy 500

London Stansted Airport, United Kingdom, 23rd February 2017 – SaxonAir is delighted to announce the addition of one of the most advanced super midsized business jets to its extensive fleet, after taking delivery of the brand-new Embraer Legacy 500, G-SUEJ.

Powered by the state-of-the-art Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics suite, the Legacy 500 is the first aircraft in its category to feature digital flight controls based on Fly-By-Wire technology. The system is further bolstered with graphical flight planning, auto brakes and Synthetic Vision.

G-SUEJ is the first Legacy 500 to be based in London and SaxonAir chief executive officer, Alex Durand, believes that the aircraft’s class-leading performance and comfort qualities has established a luxurious niche for its customers departing from the nation’s capital.

He said: “The Legacy 500’s capability to take-off from shorter airfields establishes a tremendous opportunity for our customers to travel from airports closer to their destination such as London City Airport, which is notoriously problematic for many other aircraft in its category to operate from.

“Combine this with the aircraft’s ability to fly over 3,000 nautical miles and reach destinations such as Dubai non-stop, the Legacy 500 will facilitate the requirements of practically any business or leisure customer.”

Passengers who travel on G-SUEJ will experience a fully-equipped wet galley and the latest in cabin connectivity – including WIFI, SatPhone and a high-definition inflight entertainment, displayed on multiple 19” full HD screens with individual touchscreen and wireless iPad/iPhone controls.

The Legacy 500’s 6 ft. tall and 6 ft. 10 in. wide cabin is amongst the largest in its class and its 110 cubic feet of main baggage capacity, complemented by a generous inflight-accessible baggage compartment and cabin stowage space, enables travellers to carry additional luggage for longer journeys.

“The addition of the Legacy 500 and its exceptional qualities to our already versatile fleet demonstrates our commitment and ability to deliver the most modern, advanced and luxurious experience for our customers,” continued Durand.

“With its functionality to berth its six club seats and spacious divan into four beds for longer journeys, the Legacy 500 will deliver a complete solution to our customers.

“Combine this with the Legacy 500’s cabin altitude of just 6,000 feet at high altitude and reputation as a leading player for exceptionally low cabin noise, our customers will arrive at their destination feeling increasingly refreshed.”

Additional to its impressive capabilities, the Legacy 500 wowed the aviation industry last November after it set a new benchmark for reaching continental and transoceanic routes in record time, thanks to its two Honeywell HTF7500E engines, the greenest in their class.
