Best Jets, a Phoenix Associates Subsidiary, Flies First "Platinum Edition" Learjet Model 25

Historic Flight on a Lear 25D Equipped With the Latest EFIS 890R Glass Cockpit Makes Headlines

MADISONVILLE, LA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 28, 2007 -- Phoenix Associates Land Syndicate (Phoenix) (PINKSHEETS: PBLS) announced today that its Best Jets subsidiary based in Denison, Texas is in the final stages of completing its first Best Jets 21st Century Learjet 25 "Platinum Edition" aircraft.

FAA D.E.R. and Manufacturer Flight Test Pilot, Jack Francisco, along with Co-Pilot Hunter Cuthbertson lifted N229WJ Learjet 25D Serial 229 into the air on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 at Stevens Aviation in Nashville, TN, flying for the first time ever a Learjet Model 25 equipped with Universal's Synthetic Vision 890R glass cockpit. This innovative avionics system establishes a new safety threshold by graphically projecting onto the Pilots Flight Display the earth's terrain as it would be seen through the windshield by the pilot on a clear day. This system is designed to reduce the number of aircraft accidents, caused by controlled flight into terrain.

Frank Golden of Stevens Aviation has overseen the installation of the Universal System into the Learjet from start to finish. He says this project has been the highlight of his career and has mustered every bit of his considerable avionics expertise. The project encompassed 11 Supplemental Type Certificates and a graduate degree in Space Management.

Best's Platinum Edition Learjets are equipped with:

--  10,000 Hour/12,000 Cycle General Electric CJ-610 Engines upgraded with
    General Electric's Solid Spool Compressor Rotor.
--  Universal 890R Synthetic Vision Glass cockpit with "Vision 1."
--  Universal's Application Server Unit providing WSI Weather and Charts
    for a paperless cockpit.
--  CJ 610 Engine Hush Kits that comply with Stage III noise regulations
    that bring Learjet 23, 24 & 25 series aircraft into full noise compliance.
--  Custom Artist-Aire Paint and Interior by Kate Woolstenhulme.
Roger Humiston, President and Founder of Best Jets, was overwhelmed and delighted to see that his vision for this legendary aircraft had finally become a reality. Mr. Humiston stated, "This cutting-edge technology will now place the Platinum Edition Best Jets aside any Glass Cockpit equipped business Jet." Best Jets is a wholly owned subsidiary of Phoenix Associates Land Syndicate.
