Rifton Aviation Services, an FBO at Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, N.Y., has received FAR Part 135 authority to conduct U.S. and international air-taxi operations. Rifton’s own Falcon 2000 is the first aircraft to receive certification under Rifton’s Part 135 certificate. Soon to follow will be Rifton’s Gulfstream IV and Citation Excel. Rifton officials credit the Teterboro, N.J. FSDO as being key in enabling the company to obtain full charter certification in less than six months.
