California-based FBO, aviation maintenance and charter management firm ACI Jet is adding two large-cabin Bombardier Globals and an Embraer Phenom 300 light jet to its managed charter fleet. The Global Express XRSs, to be based at San Luis County Regional Airport in the state’s central coast region, will enter charter service in the second quarter.
“These two additions continue to build on ACI Jet's strategy of growing our large-cabin fleet of aircraft, complementing our ultra-long-range Gulfstream G650, and focusing on the highest standards of in-flight service and amenities for VIP clients,” said ACI vice president of flight operations Kellee Valentine.
The Phenom 300 is the first Embraer product to be fully managed by the company, which will provide ground services of Embraer products from its Santa Ana (KSNA), San Luis Obispo (KSBP), Paso Robles (KPRB), and Oceano (L52) facilities in California. With the three additions, ACI Jets' fleet will offer more international-range flights, increased cabin size, and on-board high-speed internet service.
