Charter/management firm ExcelAire (Booth No. C6629) announced last month that it is opening a facility to serve the New York City area at Westchester County Airport in White Plains, N.Y. In addition to charter, the location will offer aircraft management and hangar space. ExcelAire, which operates more than 20 jets throughout the Northeast and Midwest, currently bases two of them at Westchester County–a Dassault Falcon 900 and a newly added Citation CJ3. The latter, which seats up to seven passengers, has a range of 1,800 nm, which means it can fly nonstop from its base to Miami and beyond.
ExcelAire, a division of Hawthorne Global Aviation Services, maintains headquarters at Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma, N.Y., where it operates a 120,000-sq-ft facility. It specializes in worldwide jet charters, aircraft management, maintenance and sales.
