Mexican charter firm buys an 800XP
The Mexican air-taxi company Sarsa purchased a new Raytheon Hawker 800XP at the convention. Based in Monterrey, Sarsa has flown Hawkers for 30 years, and this is their 12th purchase of the aircraft. “They are so reliable you can bank on them,” said Felipe Cardenas, general director of Sarsa. The air taxi’s typical mission is 1.2 hr with four passengers. Twice a month, it flies from Toluca, Mexico, to New York nonstop.
