Brazil-based GP Aerospace is trying to raise $10 million to build a flying prototype of the company’s GP210 very light jet. The GP210 is a light twin-turbine VLJ powered by two 740-pound-thrust Price Induction DGen390 turbofans, which are currently under development. Performance targets for the four-seat twin are 4,300 pounds mtow, maximum altitude 25,000 feet and high-speed cruise of 276 knots. GP Aerospace was launched by former Embraer technical director Guido Pessotti, who previously attempted to relaunch VisionAire’s Vantage single-engine jet as the twin-engine Eviation EV-20 Vantage.
