Charter operator and aircraft management firm Priester Aviation has begun offering a parts-procurement program for its managed fleet through JSSI Parts & Leasing, which has more than 38,000 stock lines of inventory that it said supports nearly every make and model of business jet.
“Many of our managed aircraft already leverage JSSI, so this is a natural partnership,” said Priester v-p of maintenance Dave Prescott. “Our customers will benefit from efficiencies in JSSI Parts & Leasing’s extensive parts procurement and logistics support, freeing our team to focus on delivering the personalized services customers have come to expect.”
JSSI Parts & Leasing chief commercial officer Jim Sellers said his unit of Jet Support Services Inc. supports 10,000 maintenance events each year, and the deal with Priester will allow its managed customers to benefit from its expertise, buying power, and industry relationships that allow it to expedite the sourcing of parts at a lower cost while reducing aircraft downtime.
“JSSI has enjoyed a long relationship with Priester Aviation, and we look forward to working closely with its proven team to support parts orders, enhance maintenance planning, and provide detailed cost projections for customers,” Sellers added.
