The state of New Mexico is having some buyer’s remorse.
After buying A500 aircraft from Adam Aircraft, the manufacturer filed for bankruptcy and stopped production.
Now, there’s no warranty on their planes and no factory to supply spare parts. In January, the New Mexico Department of Public Safety took delivery on the last of five A500 planes that went to buyers, according to an Associated Press report. The state, luckily, has a technician who knows how to service them.
Public Safety Secretary John Denko said the agency wasn’t aware of the company’s tenuous financial situation when the state bought the airplanes, according to the report.
