Connecticut-based Magnum Jet confirmed an order placed several months ago with Adam Aircraft for 101 A700 very light jets (VLJ) for planned management and air-limo services. Englewood, Colo.-based Adam Aircraft recently certified the A500 piston twin and is expected to receive FAA approval for the Williams International-powered A700 by year-end. In September Magnum ordered 50 Embraer Phenom 100 VLJs, with options for 50 more.
