Grob Aerospace, which last month at EBACE in Geneva showcased its six-passenger fuselage mockup of the Grob SPn light business jet with a new cabin interior from the Porsche Design Studio, said that it had firm orders for more than 60 SPns, equivalent to the first two years’ production. European certification is expected in April, with U.S. certification to follow three months later. The company also said it has opened a new facility in Portsmouth, N.H., to provide product support, parts warehousing and a delivery center. Completions might eventually be done in Portsmouth as well, the company said. Meanwhile, the manufacturer has also appointed Northern Executive Aviation of Manchester, UK, an SPn service center. A parts warehouse is planned in Germany so that orders can be shipped within four hours of an AOG call.
