The Aviation Alliance Announces First Product Offering, Excalibur 421

PASO ROBLES, Calif., Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Aviation Alliance, LLC (Alliance) has announced its first business-aviation offering, the Excalibur 421. Featuring a remanufactured Cessna 421 airframe and Pratt & Whitney PT6A-135A turboprop engines, the Excalibur 421 also includes an extensive custom Garmin avionics suite and a new-generation interior cabin. Tires, brakes, de-icing, hydraulics and electrical systems are also all new.

"The Excalibur 421 is essentially a brand-new airplane," said Jack Pelton, Aviation Alliance managing director of operations. "We own the PT6A STC (Supplemental Type Certificate), and we're already flying a prototype, which is proving that our aggressive performance goals are realistic and achievable. There's nothing flying that can come close to the value proposition and performance that we're offering."

"The Excalibur will be attractive to existing 421 owners as well as operators considering the purchase of single- or twin-engine cabin-class turboprops, new or pre-owned," Pelton said. "We're going to deliver an airplane that redefines the category."

Initial pricing of the Excalibur 421 is $2.5 million. With a projected top speed of 327 kts and 1,420 nm maximum range (with IFR reserves), the Excalibur 421 pairs jet-like performance with twin-turboprop dependability, safety and efficiency. Excalibur 421 aerodynamic enhancements include winglets, vortex generators and aft strakes.

Remanufacturing, systems retrofitting and interior completions will be performed by Alliance team members located in Oklahoma City at the Oklahoma Jet Support Center and Capital Aviation. Excalibur 421 aircraft will be covered by warranties similar to OEM warranties on new aircraft.

The Excalibur 421 demonstration aircraft will be completed by late summer, with initial deliveries of new aircraft beginning by the end of 2013.
