The new year will see Excel-Jet Ltd. relocating from Colorado to the Oklahoma City suburb of Guthrie. The company manufactures the single-engine Sport-Jet.
Excel-Jet will set up shop in a 10,000-square-foot hangar at Guthrie/Edmond Municipal Airport (KGOK) in the next 90 to 120 days. It is estimated that when it is operational the facility could provide 300 to 500 jobs.
Excel-Jet will integrate the FJ33 engine into the Sport-Jet and then fly it to its new home in Guthrie to complete pre-certification flight testing.
The Sport-Jet is a 4+1 seat, single-engine, all-glass aircraft aimed at the GA pilot. It is expected to sell for about $1 million.
