Eagle Creek Delivers First of Two Colombian Grand Renaissance Aircraft

Eagle Creek Delivers First of Two Colombian Grand Renaissance Aircraft

The first of two Grand Renaissance Twin Commanders has been delivered to the Colombian Army by Eagle Creek Aviation Services, which performed the Grand Renaissance conversions on the Colombian-owned airplanes. The two Grand Renaissance Twin Commanders—a Jetprop 980 (model 695) and 1000 (695A)--will serve dual roles in the Colombian Army as military executive transports and medevac aircraft.

Along with the extensive Grand Renaissance upgrade, Eagle Creek completed service bulletin work, an interior refurbishment, and managed the exterior repainting of the first aircraft, and is doing the same for the second. Both aircraft are benefiting from an extensive avionics panel upgrade including dual Garmin G600 Flight Displays; Garmin GTN750 and 650 GPS/Nav/Comm units; a Garmin GMA35 Audio Panel; dual Garmin GTX33 Transponders; a Garmin GWX68 Weather Radar; and Meggitt Avionics Engine Instruments Display Systems.

Representatives of the Colombian Army came to Eagle Creek’s facility in Indianapolis to take delivery of the first aircraft. The refurbishment project was conducted in cooperation with Asesorias Y Representacion Para Ingenieria S.A.

Eagle Creek said it plans on delivering the second Colombian Grand Renaissance in the fourth quarter of 2011. This is the third Grand Renaissance completion for Eagle Creek in about two years.

“We congratulate Eagle Creek on delivering the first of two Grand Renaissance Commanders to the Colombian Army,” commented Twin Commander Aircraft President Matt Isley. “The fact that operators, including foreign government agencies and the military, are choosing the Grand Renaissance is solid evidence that there is simply no new aircraft out there capable of delivering the all-around performance, fuel efficiency, and value of a Twin Commander, especially one that has benefited from the world’s only factory-authorized and monitored twin-turboprop airframe refurbishment program.”

The Grand Renaissance process involves disassembly of the aircraft to its aluminum shell, and a comprehensive overhaul or replacement of all systems and virtually all components on the aircraft. Engines are upgraded to the latest specification if necessary, a new interior is installed, and the aircraft is painted. The result is a certified aircraft of superlative quality, safety, and long-term value backed by worldwide service and parts support.
