Aircraft Description

Jet Connections is pleased to offer this VIP 737 – 200 Advanced for sale.

This aircraft was Originally acquired directly from Boeing in October 1981 as a B737-200 Advanced and registered under the Swiss flag; this aircraft underwent a VIP Completion process at Air Research Aviation in Long Beach, California. The modifications included installing a corporate interior accommodating 19 passengers and four flight attendants, along with auxiliary fuel tanks.

The finalization of the interior took place in November 1982, marking the commencement of its active service. Initially owned and operated by Petrolair System S.A. until 1997, the aircraft then transitioned into the possession of the renowned entrepreneur Wayne Huizenga. Subsequently, Jet Connections acquired it for a private owner, and in 2021, the aircraft changed hands once again for private use by its current owner.

Throughout its operational history, this aircraft has been exclusively dedicated to the private transportation of passengers, avoiding any involvement in public transport or charter services. Notably, it has undergone maintenance at prominent facilities in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France, following the Daniels Low Utilization maintenance program, and boasts a clean record with no reported damage.

The most recent major maintenance, covering C1, C2, and C3, occurred in 2018, and AD 6431 on Both Engines was completed on October 20, 2022. Presently, the aircraft is scheduled for C3 and CPCP maintenance.

In light of a change in the owner's circumstances and the aircraft's current location in South Africa for maintenance inspections, the strategic decision has been taken to offer the aircraft for sale in the market, presenting a unique and compelling opportunity for potential buyers.

The aircraft is offered for sale “AS IS WHERE IS”
