Breaking from its single-airplane fleet of Piaggio Avanti twin turboprops, Fairfield, N.J.-based fractional provider Avantair has added two new Beechcraft Premier I light jets as core airplanes. Avantair CEO Steven Santo told AIN that the company added the jets because it has been unable to add Avantis fast enough as core airplanes. There is a waiting list of share customers, and the frax provider is taking as many airplanes as Piaggio can currently produce. Further, he said the Premier I is the only available light jet with a cabin that is somewhat comparable to that of the Italian-built turboprop.
