 - May 13, 2009, 4:44 AM

328 Support Services announced the sale of two 328Jets to a Middle Eastern customer. The aircraft, formerly operated by Shell Netherlands, will be refurbished with 10-seat executive interiors and long-range wing-center tanks at 328 Support’s Oberpfaffenhofen facility. The aircraft will be operated for VIP use in the Middle East and Africa by HYSSOP Global of Nigeria on behalf of its private owner. Work on the first aircraft will start immediately, while the second 328 will enter the Oberpfaffenhofen shop in September. The additional tanks give the 328 a range of 2,000 nm allowing, for example, nonstop flights from Dubai to Cairo. 328 Support Services (Booth No. 893) also has a 328Jet fitted with a 12-seat executive interior on static display. That aircraft is owned by Cirrus Aviation, part of the newly expanded DC Aviation Group.
