Project Phoenix Launches Refurbished Jets

  • Mary Grady

Project Phoenix, based in Montreal and Dubai, provides an alternative for buyers who are frustrated in their search for a new jet at the right price with quick delivery. The company buys up used Bombardier CRJ-200 jets that still have plenty of life in them, completely overhauls and updates the systems, creates a new custom interior in executive configuration, and delivers in 12 months. Optional extra fuel tanks provide extended range up to 3,500 miles, and state-of-the-art insulation creates a quieter cabin. The company’s first refurbished CRJ, with seats for 15 passengers, flew in June. (971.4.324.3327, www.projectphoenixaircraft.com)
