Gem Aircraft is a company which will manufacture a technologically advanced light flight training aircraft from composite materials. This aircraft will be superior to existing training aircraft, in terms of weight, fuel consumption, performance, and low life-cycle costs. It will replace the aging training aircraft currently available in the market and will cater for the new age pilot. 90% of all training aircrafts are 50 years and older and needs to be replaced by a new generation aircraft.
Also the purchase of an airfield with a approved flight training school and AMO as a running concern.
The R&D are done
A current airfield with operational licences
A build certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority.
A LOI for 200 units.
