- Custom ALTO audio system calibrated for cabin using ALTO's MySound optimisation tool to ensure perfect sound

- Upgraded high definition monitors

“We are proud to be taking our very own Falcon 2000 to its first ever NBAA Regional Forum,” says president Ben Shirazi. “Owning our own business jet is the perfect way to demonstrate what we do. Our Falcon embodies the elegance of contemporary private aviation, and the Opa locka Regional Forum is the ideal opportunity for our team to network with the business aviation community in Florida and from across the southeast.

“More generally, 2023 is off to a strong start for us. At present, our hangar is full. We are working on several completions projects, including a Bombardier Global Express, an Embraer Legacy 600, a Bombardier Challenger 604 and a Sikorsky S-92. We invite interested parties to visit us at the Regional Forum and look forward to showing our Falcon 2000 while discussing the requirements and preferences of our prospective clients.”
