Back On Track: Symphony Earns TC, PC

Prepares to Deliver the First Canadian-Built Symphony 160

Symphony Aircraft Industries tells ANN that Transport Canada has assumed responsibility as the "State of Design" for the Symphony 160 aircraft, and has issued the required Type and Production Certificates to Symphony Aircraft Industries.

“All of us at SAI have worked very hard to reach these major milestones, and are thrilled to receive the type and production certificates for the Symphony 160,” said SAI President and CEO Paul Costanzo (below, right). “Now we can move forward and do what we’re in business to do – build and deliver aircraft.”

Transport Canada issued the Type Certificate for the SA 160, known as the Symphony 160, on Friday, March 18, 2005, followed by the Production Certification Tuesday, March 22. As holder of the primary Type Certificate, SAI is now responsible for the continuing airworthiness of the aircraft, and is accountable to Transport Canada. The production certificate authorizes SAI to manufacture and certify the Symphony 160.

The first Symphony 160 built at SAI's facility in Three Rivers will be delivered on March 31, 2005 to Ron Corbi of Corbi Aircraft Sales in Salem, Ohio. "As a new dealer, Ron really needs a Symphony 160 to use with their customers," said Costanzo.

"Getting demonstrators into the hands of all our dealers is a high priority for SAI."

Corbi Aircraft Sales is very excited about receiving the first delivery. “The SA 160 is a great aircraft. We are honored to be a Symphony dealer, representing such a plane,” said Corbi. “We have many customers anxiously waiting to fly the new Symphony 160. I know they’ll love the aircraft as much as I do.”
