SAN ANTONIO , Texas, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- J.P. Murphy, president of Pro Aero Solutions in San Antonio , Texas, announces that they have been contracted by Interceptor Aircraft Corporation to negotiate the sale of the Meyers Aircraft Company. Murphy says, "The Meyers Aircraft Company is the best-kept secret in the aviation industry today."
Interceptor Aircraft Corporation (formerly Prop-Jets, Inc.), a Texas-based company, owns the Meyers Aircraft Company, to include the Type Certificate 3A18 for the Meyers 200 series and I-400 series aircraft, all manufacturing tooling, drawings and parts, and the second (and only existing) full production Interceptor 400.
The Meyers 200 series has a 4130 chrome-moly steel frame structure. This consists of what is known as the "bridge" section which extends from one main landing gear, across the underside of the cockpit area, to the other main landing gear. The 4130 also surrounds the cockpit area for unequaled protection. It exceeds 200 kts in cruise, is single piston engine powered, 4 place, and has never had an airworthiness directive (AD) issued against any major components by the FAA. There has never been an in-flight structural failure of a Meyers Aircraft.
The Type Certificate also includes the Interceptor 400 (I400) which was the first single-engine prop-jet certified in the U.S. It is a pressurized, air-conditioned, all-metal aircraft with 4130 chrome-moly steel frame and a cruising speed of over 300 kts at 24,000 feet. "The I400 is prime for today's third world defense markets," says Murphy.
Murphy says, "Although the aircraft industry represents billions of dollars annually it is in fact a small world industry, and we anticipate that the news of Meyers Aircraft Company's availability will certainly attract global interest. We are already receiving interest from corporate and private sectors and currently have a major U.S. manufacturer showing serious interest. With the phenomenal growth of foreign general aviation I feel a number of foreign manufacturers and investors will soon prove to be strong competitors as well."
"We have also recently been approached by a U.S. Aerospace/Defense engineering firm with overwhelming statistics for replacement of military training aircraft here in the U.S. and abroad, and they feel that both of the Meyers Aircraft are of consideration to supply those needs," says Murphy.
"So with all this in mind it appears the timing truly is right for the Meyers Aircraft to return to production. I am personally very excited about the future of Meyers Aircraft Company, as it is thought by many to be one of the best aircraft ever built. Once production begins, the Meyers will certainly be at the top of its class."
