Big News! Liberty Aerospace Delivers S/N 100

Aircraft Is Owner's Second XL2

Liberty Aerospace, manufacturer of the two-seat Liberty XL2, announced Thursday the delivery of Serial Number 100. The aircraft was delivered to Robert Kinney during a press event at Liberty’s manufacturing facility in Melbourne, FL.

"I like to compare it to a Mazda Miata," said Kinney. "It’s an economical, sporty, two-seater that handles well and is a blast to fly!"

This will be the second XL2 acquired by Kinney, who purchased his first XL2 after learning to fly in a Liberty at his local flight school. His new XL2 will be used for advanced flight training and personal transportation.

Liberty was founded in 2000 with the intent of designing and building a highly efficient, fully Part 23 IFR and VFR certified two-seat aircraft. Both the company and the aircraft have evolved significantly since then, and have also seen their share of problems -- but the company seems to have hit its stride of late.

As ANN reported, the company announced in December a 600-plane manufacturing agreement with China's Anyang Angel Aero Science and Technology Development Co., Ltd. (3A) worth $150 million. Company officials say they've seen growing acceptance from flight schools and private owners in the USA, Australia, Europe and Asia for the plane.

The planemaker also notes the XL2 is fully IFR-certified, and offers a number of features unique to the market, including a FADEC powerplant.

"The delivery of Serial Number 100 marks an important and exciting milestone in our company’s history," said Keith Markley, President and CEO of Liberty. "The XL2 represents a unique proposition to Flight Schools and Owners making available a state of the art aircraft with low operating and maintenance costs achieved through modular design and utilizing the fuel efficient TCM FADEC engine. We look forward to the next 100 aircraft coming down the line rapidly."
