New York-based ExcelAire (Booth No. 405) announced it has added three Gulfstreams to its fleet, bringing the total number of aircraft it operates to 18. The company will be adding a Gulfstream GIII, G450 and GV to the fleet, as well, which includes a Bombardier Global Express, five GIIIs, a GIV-SP, two Embraer Legacy 600s and a number of Hawkers and Learjets.

The GIII seats 12 passengers and can fly nonstop to any destination in the continental U.S., in addition to many cities within Central and South America and Western Europe, the company said. The 12-seat G450 can travel 4,350 nm and cruise at speeds up to Mach 0.88.

ExcelAire, which operates an FBO at MacArthur Airport on Long Island, owns the Legacy 600 involved in last year’s deadly midair collision in Brazil with a Gol Airlines Boeing 737. The Legacy remains grounded at the military base where it made an emergency landing last September 29.
