St. Louis-based Sabreliner received RVSM group certification for the Sabre 65. The approval, based on the installation and flight testing of equipment in six Sabre 65s, means customers installing the equipment won’t need trailing-cone flight tests and subsequent data reviewed by the FAA, said Sabreliner. The company said it can install the required equipment in “two to three weeks,” depending on an aircraft’s current avionics configuration. Sabreliner offers analog and digital RVSM packages installed
for the Sabre 65 for $189,900 and $239,900, respectively. Sabreliner expects to receive RVSM group approval for its Models 60 and 80 next summer.
