SyberJet Aircraft (Booth No.13023) is preparing to restart production of the SJ30 light twinjet. The company acquired the rights to the SJ30 in 2011. Hints of activity began a year ago when SyberJet announced that production would be moved from San Antonio, Texas, to Cedar City, Utah, and that Honeywell had been tapped to provide an upgraded avionics system, the Apex-based SyberVision. (The SJ30 currently features the Honeywell Epic system.)
In addition to its broad-based cabin interiors work, over the past half-decade 328 Support Services has built itself a niche in the market for an executive and private aircraft conversion from the Dornier 328JET. Branded the 328DBJ (Dornier Business Jet), a full-scale, cutaway mockup is on display at the company’s exhibit here at EBACE (Stand 1913).
The new owners of the SJ30 light jet program are renaming their company “SyberJet Aircraft,” shuttering the former owner’s Martinsburg, W.Va. assembly line and moving most of the aircraft’s production tooling to Cedar City, Utah.
