Synergy Aviation, a long established UK operator based at Fairoaks airport, has taken delivery of a new Cirrus Jet G2+. The London-based managed aircraft will fly on Synergy’s AOC and join its existing jet fleet comprising CJ series aircraft, Citation 550s and a Citation Mustang.

Owner Glen Heavens comments: “This aircraft is going to be a game changer on the charter market for several reasons. Firstly, the economies of operating a single engine jet will set the aircraft apart from competing charter aircraft, especially with a cruise speed of well over 300 kts. Secondly, the added safety of a ballistic parachute and Safe Return system puts passengers at ease and negates concerns around operating a single engine aircraft. Lastly, and probably most importantly, the environmental impact of this aircraft is greatly reduced compared to older twin engine jets and turboprops. Many of our passengers are in the public eye and the pressure to reduce an individual’s contribution to climate change is constantly increasing. By flying on the SF50 ‘EcoJet’ our passengers will be demonstrating their commitment to reducing carbon emissions and their environmental impact.”

The SF50 Cirrus Jet is a bestseller and has a number of features usually found on larger aircraft, such as passenger power sockets, rear climate control and hand crafted VIP leather seating.

Despite the luxury interior, Synergy will also be utilising it for organ transplant, AOG and urgent cargo. “Flying at jet speeds at costs well below those of a King Air, we will complete our customers’ missions quicker and cheaper than our competitors, making this aircraft unbeatable in these markets,” Heavens adds.

Synergy’s application to add the aircraft to its AOC has been accepted by the UK CAA, which is committed to being the first national aviation authority in Europe to authorise a single engine jet for commercial air transport. In another first Synergy and the CAA are planning for the aircraft to be placed on the UK ‘G’ register at Cirrus’ US factory and will fly it across the Atlantic to London as G-VISN.
