Inflite buys BAe 146 for conversion to ABJ

BAE Systems has announced the sale of another Avro Business Jet (ABJ), to Southend-based Inflite Engineering Services. Inflite, which has already been involved in several other ABJ projects, is acquiring former Air Botswana BAe 146-100 G-BVLJ (msn E1160 ex A2-ABF) for conversion to ABJ configuration. It does not yet have a customer for the aircraft. Inflite Engineering Services MD Steve Buckingham explained: “We have a really positive experience of the Avro Business Jet and the strong market reaction to it, and this has convinced us there is an excellent business opportunity to buy our own aircraft, convert it and offer it for sale. If this concept works then we would not rule out further speculative acquisitions.”
