Adam Aircraft Sells First Twenty Airplanes

01 June 2001

Adam Aircraft Industries has sold 20 M-309 aircraft since the first of the year. Vice President of sales Tom Wiesner said, ""We have built an excellent team of engineers and technicians that are keeping us on schedule. This, along with the opportunity to own a modern, safe, affordable airplane makes it very attractive to own."" The first twenty airplanes were sold at an introductory price of $695,000.00 and will be delivered beginning in 2003. The price of the next ten airplanes will be announced this week.

The price for the M-309 was introduced in January and the response has been very positive. All twenty owners of the first delivery positions have expressed their excitement about being the pioneers of the Adam M-309. Adam Aircraft is thrilled to have a core group of owners who will provide valuable input on some design, avionics and option decisions.

The M-309 is a 6-place, all composite, centerline thrust piston twin. Modern technology such as carbon composite structure, a glass cockpit and single power-lever engines make this a state-of-the-art aircraft. It will have a 2,300-pound useful load with a fuel capacity of 250 gallons. At 20,000 feet, the airplane will have a maximum speed of 250 knots with cruise at 220 knots and an economy cruise of 190 knots. The cruising range will be 1,500 nautical miles when operating in fuel economy mode. It has a wingspan of 42 feet, is 34.5 feet long and 9.5 feet high. The cabin length is 13.6 feet long by 4.3 feet wide.

Adam Aircraft Industries, based in Englewood, Colo., was founded in 1998 to produce a twin-engine aircraft that provides a combination of groundbreaking technology, reliability, comfort and safety.
