Alabama's Southern Sky Aviation has added a 2004 Beechcraft Premier I to its aircraft charter and management fleet. The light jet has one of the largest cabins in its class, can seat six passengers, and has a fully loaded range of approximately 950 miles. Based at Mobile International Airport, the twinjet offers a galley area for refreshments, private enclosed lavatory, and baggage storage compartment with a capacity of 55 cu ft.
"With its spacious cabin and impressive speeds, [the Premier I] will provide a great regional travel option for our passengers,” says Barry Lambert, v-p of the company’s charter division, which also operates a Citation 560, two Citation XLSs, and a Citation Sovereign. "Demand for all aircraft in our fleet has been robust.”
In addition to its aircraft operations, Southern Sky has an FBO at Trent Lott International Airport in Pascagoula, Mississippi, and is establishing a facility at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport in Panama City, Florida.
