In the business aviation industry, the People’s Republic of China is getting ever more attention as a rapidly emerging market. Indianapolis Jet Center is among those finding business in that country’s burgeoning economy and has just begun work to convert a former CRJ200 regional jet to a 16-passenger business airplane for a private individual. The job includes a complete gutting of the interior, major inspection and an engine change-out.

Indianapolis Jet Center president and founder Randy Keeker said he has been fielding more inquiries about converting retired Bombardier-built regional jets to business-jet use, “installing what is in essence a Global Express cabin in an airplane with shorter legs” at a cost of about $15 million. The job, said Keeker, confirms the company’s decision to expand with the recent addition of a 50,000-sq-ft hangar capable of holding a Boeing Business Jet.
