Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) November 9, 2009
Next Dimension Aircraft (ND) today announced an innovative and industry-first personalized pre-owned aircraft program designed to provide fully-customized Cirrus SR22 aircraft with a high-performance Tornado Alley Turbo powerplant and Avidyne Entegra Release 9 avionics suite.
ND President, Scott Crenshaw commented, “We recognize a niche that exists for customers that want a safe, warranty-backed high-performance aircraft, but don’t want to bear the costs of a new plane; nor be forced to deal with the large loss in value generally associated with a new aircraft purchase.”
“ND provides the experience of purchasing a new, custom-configured aircraft, without the large costs and risks of a new purchase,” said Ken Johnson, CFO of ND Aircraft. “We want to help pilots fly the aircraft of their dreams, in a new, more financially sensible way.”
ND offers many unique and customer-focused ways for clients to secure the aircraft of their dreams including custom configuring an aircraft online at ndaircraft.com, selecting from an existing stock of upgraded aircraft, or simply having their own aircraft converted in accordance with the program. No matter the upgrade choice, each aircraft will come equipped with GAMISPEC™ IO-550N Engine with the TAT TN System delivering efficient cruise speeds in excess of 200 KTAS.
“We are very excited to be involved in this great opportunity with ND Aircraft,” said Tim Roehl, President of Tornado Alley Turbo, Inc. “We have several exciting new product improvements coming out that will significantly enhance the performance of our TN system, and this is a great way to make them available to the Cirrus owner community in such a unique way.”
“Worpe9 is a really terrific upgrade program and Avidyne is delighted with the opportunity to provide our next-generation Entegra Release 9 platform on what may be the best-performing single-engine piston aircraft on the planet when you consider its amazing speed and climb performance versus its conservative fuel consumption,” said Dan Schwinn, Avidyne President and CEO.
The premium configuration offered by ND is named the “Worpe9™” denoting the “World Peace” feature of the TAT powerplant and the R9 Avidyne avionics panel. The “Worpe 9™” package includes: new GAMISPEC™ IO-550N Engine, TAT TN System newly configured for Electronic Engine Controls including Electronically Controlled Wastegate for Turbo Density Normalization (TDN™), aka “Density Controller™” and Automatic Mixture Control (GAMI’s Mixture Magic™), and Avidyne’s R9 Avionics Package. The result is a higher performance powerplant and a more capable avionics package than is available at the factory for hundreds of thousands of dollars less. Some details of the new TAT powerplant will not be released until spring of 2010 due to proprietary considerations. Aircraft modified in advance of the new features will be upgraded at no cost to the owner.
