At the NBAA convention in Atlanta in 1989, IAI announced the improved Astra SP. Aerodynamic refinement of the wing resulted in increased IFR range with the capability of zero flap takeoffs. The Astra is normally configured for six passengers in a club-and-a-half arrangement, although the aircraft is certificated for up to nine passengers in addition to the two pilots. The Astra SP is powered by a pair of AlliedSignal TFE 731-3C-200G turbofans rated at 3,700 lb. thrust each. Inspection interval on the engines is 4,200 hours.
The IAI Astra SP has a range of 2,558 nautical miles. Type in your city or airport identifier for a visual representation of the NBAA IFR Range (NM) for this aircraft.
