Midcoast Aviation and Bombardier have, in principle, agreed to slots at the former’s St. Louis, Missouri completion center for the outfitting of up to 41 business aircraft–15 Global 5000 or Global Express XRSes, 18 Challenger 605s and eight Challenger 850s–over the coming three years. Midcoast completed its first “green” Challenger in 1983. Here, Midcoast Aviation president Kurt Sutterer (left) toasts the arrangement with Bombardier Business Aircraft vice president James Hoblyn.
