The aircraft, configured for 35 passengers, will probably act as a corporate shuttle for the Canadian engine maker. The small jet was produced in Germany in 1999 and rolled out wearing test registration D-BDXL. It was delivered to Wanair of Tahiti, French Polynesia as F-OHJM (named "Marutea") on 15.12.1999 but the ownership was registered to SNC Tahiti Invest 1999 on 20.12.1999. The aircraft was subsequently returned to SNC Tahiti Invest 1999 on 29.09.2006. It was then purchased by UAM, re-registered as N129UM and stored at an unknown location (Tahiti-Faa airport?) until it was purchased by PWC.
Below is the interesting delivery route, which began in Papeete, French Polynesia and ended in Plattsburgh, one of Pratt & Whitney bases.
