Charter operator and jet card provider Thrive Aviation has taken delivery of a Gulfstream G600, its first long-range jet. The aircraft joins Thrive's owned and managed fleet largely comprising Cessna Citations. The order was announced earlier this year by Savannah, Georgia-based Gulfstream Aerospace.

“We appreciate the confidence Thrive has placed in Gulfstream as they enter a new segment of their business with the G600,” said Gulfstream president Mark Burns. “The G600 is expertly suited for Thrive’s mission and gives their customers new access to the latest in safety advancements and performance efficiencies.”

With a range of 6,600 nm at Mach 0.85, the G600 seats up to 19 passengers depending on the configuration. “The G600 helps take our services to a new level," said Thrive co-founder Vitali Lapko.

Thrive is based at Henderson Executive Airport and operates a more than 30,000-sq-ft maintenance facility at nearby Las Vegas Harry Reid International Airport. The addition of the G600 follows a previous order from the company for three super-midsize Cessna Citation Longitudes. Its fleet types also include the Citation Sovereign+, CJ3+, and M2, and Dassault Falcon 2000.
