London Biggin Hill Airport-based charter firm PlaneChartering, owner of the loss-making Club328 brand, disbanded its Fairchild Dornier 328Jet and Hawker Beechcraft Premier Is and laid off 14 of its pilots last month. Meanwhile, PlaneChartering group CEO Paul Crowther is taking over from Club328’s CEO, Elaine Young, who left the company. PlaneChartering acquired Southampton, UK-based Club328 from Corporate Jet Services in October. The acquired fleet
included one 328Jet, two Premier Is and a Hawker 800B. Crowther told AIN, “The group will now embark on an aggressive expansion program. We have just
spent $6.5 million on a Hawker 800B, the first of four that will be coming on line with us in the next four months.”
