JetDirect Aviation Expands Into VNY

Acquires Spirit Aviation

Representatives with JetDirect Aviation, LLC tell ANN the national private jet services firm is growing its network with its most recent acquisition -- of Spirit Aviation Inc., a leading aircraft charter, sales and maintenance provider based in Van Nuys, CA.

"Spirit Aviation has been providing a superior level of business to its clientele for over 23 years. With 4 bases of operations throughout California and New York, including Part 145 maintenance and an extensive range of aircraft from twin turboprops to intercontinental jets, Spirit represents the ideal addition to our growing list of capabilities," say Gregory Campbell, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of JetDirect Aviation LLC.

JetDirect Aviation offers clients flexibility when making their travel plans, and company representatives report it will continue to expand nationally with additional maintenance suppliers, FBO locations and an expanded fleet. To date, JetDirect has also acquired Summit Jet LLC, of Farmingdale, NY; Chester County Aviation Holdings, LLC, of Coatesville, PA; and JetCorp LLC in St. Louis, MO.

Mark Schmaltz will continue as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Spirit Aviation, with Kurt Kohler serving as Executive Vice President. The company will continue to provide the same superior level of service and safety that its customer base has come to expect.

JetDirect Aviation's current combined fleet of aircraft covers the complete range of light jets to wide body long-range jets. The company offers standard charter, jet membership programs and jet ownership options designed to meet the specific travel need of its clientele. Future acquisitions will also provide for additional charter, maintenance and FBO operations throughout the United States.

Spirit Aviation is a leading provider of aviation services in the California and New York areas providing its customers access to business aircraft quickly and efficiently. They offer outstanding charter and rental programs using an extensive fleet of next-generation aircraft. Spirit is also a certified FAA Part 145 repair station and offers aircraft sales and management.
