Aircraft management firm and charter operator Cockrell Resources has changed its name to Houston JetDirect in response to an increased demand environment for its Part 135 charter operations. “Following two years of dramatic change in the aviation industry, the company is poised to offer greater value to a larger number of aircraft owners and travelers,” said JetDirect president and general manager Alberto Castro. “Rebranding now to focus on our primary mission makes sense.”
Founded in the 1950s, the Houston-based company initiated the change to emphasize its aircraft management specialization, as well as its expanded charter offerings from Texas and the Southwest to points across the Americas.
Based at William P. Hobby Airport, JetDirect’s fleet comprises the Bombardier Learjet 45 and 75, Cessna Citation Sovereign, Bombardier Challenger 300/350, and Dassault Falcon 2000LX. The company also holds Argus Gold and Wyvern-registered operator designations.
