Dépèche transmise le 22 avril 2010 par PRNewswire

NEW DELHI, April 22, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- InterGlobe General Aviation Pvt. Limited (IGGA), a group company of InterGlobe Enterprises, has signed with Pacific Aerospace for the exclusive sales of the P-750 XSTOL aircraft in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and the Maldives.

The introduction of the P-750 will be the first XSTOL (Extremely Short Take Off and Landing) aircraft to enter the region. As the world's most versatile aircraft, not only is it the ideal passenger carrier, it is the perfect aircraft to carry out a variety of Special Missions, already proving itself in some of the most demanding environments across the world. The aircraft is being used by the UN World Food Programme in Chad, Sudan and Nepal, humanitarian work in the highlands of Papua New Guinea and Aerial Survey work in the Australian outback along with the freezing extremes of Alaska and the Himalayas. Pacific Aerospace has recently partnered with L-3 Communications to offer the P-750 XSTOL to the US Air Force for missions in Afghanistan.

The addition of the P-750 adds a new element to IGGA's current product offering, including exclusive representation for Hawker Beechcraft Corporation, Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation and Dornier Seaplane Company and further emphasizes IGGA's mission to set the benchmark for General Aviation in the region.

Mr. Nigel Harwood, President and CEO, InterGlobe General Aviation said, "We are pleased to enter into this long term association with Pacific Aerospace which has a heritage of 50 years in designing and manufacturing rugged, versatile and reliable aircraft. The performance of P-750 XSTOL makes this a perfect aircraft for the diverse terrain of the region due to its extremely short take off and landing capability in hot and high altitude conditions and exceptional payload performance".

Damian Camp, Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Aerospace said, "India is an enormous market for performance based aircraft and no other aircraft comes close to the performance,ruggedness and reliability of the P-750 XSTOL. With IGGA's market knowledge and reach we are sure the P-750 will become a major part of Indian aviation".

The agreement between the two companies not only recognizes the requirement for such aircraft in the region, but also cements InterGlobe General Aviation as the long-term partner of choice. "Potential for P-750 sales in our region is large and we see a fantastic opportunity with this product" said Harwood.
