Express 2000RG Heading For Price Increase

How Much Speed Do You Want To Buy?

The price of the Express Series 2000RG kit will increase, as of December 31st, 2003, to $75800. Even so, this bird is still priced thousands below many competing retractable gear SportPlane kits.

The Express Series 2000RG features a cabin class useful load of 1875 pounds, 375 pounds more than available in other kits and even ahead of certified aircraft in the top end of the light aircraft price range. Fuel capacity is 140 gallons verses 90 and the 2000RG can carry that extra 50 gallons of fuel and still fill all four seats plus luggage. The large rear seating and luggage areas make your passengers feel like they are in a cabin class aircraft.

Express Aircraft claims that other comparisons show that the Express 2000RG is the right answer for real-world use. The low stall speed (dirty) of 53 knots versus 65 knots, and demonstrated cross wind component of 29 knots versus 18 knots, means larger margins of safety for low speed maneuvering and landing. That results in an aircraft that doesn't require someone with fighter pilot skills to fly it.

The Express Series 2000FT fixed gear kit will remain priced at $48,900, making it one of the best deals in fast, high-payload, long distance, roomy 4-place aircraft.

Express Aircraft's fast-build kits, when combined with the Builder Assist Program located at the factory and factory finishing services, can get you flying in as little as 400 hours of build time.
