The 4th generation part 23 aircraft manufacturer, Elixir Aircraft, marked next phase of their continued advancement by receiving EASA Certification for the Full Glass Cockpit layout. Consisting of Dual Garmin G3X touchscreens, a GTN750xi and Garmins GNC355a Comms and Nav backup unit.  

World Wide head of sales Mike Tonkin commented: “With this new flight deck configuration now certified, the Elixir corresponds perfectly for the global flight training market. As we know the aging Single Engine Piston (average aircraft age 48 years old) fleet needs replacing globally, at Elixir Aircraft we feel we have the perfect EASA CS Part 23 certified Aircraft to meet the current market requirements. The Elixir is modern, safe, versatile and extremely cost effective with an average hourly operating cost of around 50€ per hour for any ATO/FTO flying around 500 hours per year per aircraft.” 

Back in June, Elixir announced an expansion of headquarters in La Rochelle, France to 14,000 m² (150,000 sqft). This highly energy-efficient and environmentally friendly industrial site will house all production activities. Elixir Aircraft aims to produce more than 300 aircraft a year. To meet demand, Elixir HQ is expected to employ over a thousand people by 2033.
