California-based Clay Lacy Aviation is seeing the highest growth in its managed aircraft fleet in the company’s history. Over the past six months 15 business jets ranging from a Gulfstream G550 to a Learjet 45XR have joined its corporate charter fleet, which now numbers 75 aircraft.
Constant Aviation is expanding its national sales force and maintenance offerings through its three facilities in Cleveland, Ohio; Birmingham, Ala.; and Las Vegas, Nev. Constant now offers maintenance services on the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 and Legacy 600 and 650; the Cessna Citation X; all Hawker 800 series; Beechjet/Hawker 400 series; and Bombardier Challenger 300 jets as well as the Piaggio Avanti and King Air turboprops. Offered services include airframe, engine and avionics repair, interior refurbishment and parts distribution.
Jet Aviation Flight Services will operate and manage a U.S.-based fleet of Bombardier Global jets for VistaJet’s Flight Solutions Program, the two Swiss companies announced before the show.
“Our alliance with Jet Aviation Flight Services is key to growing our business in the world’s largest corporate aircraft marketplace,” said Thomas Flohr, VistaJet founder and chairman. “We are confident that the VistaJet customer experience on flights operated by Jet Aviation will be seamless.”
Making a corporate jet work for an individual or a corporation is all about the math. And we all know that the purchase price of an aircraft is simply the price of entry.
