Will Offer Ownership, Charter, Training Options
Jet Source recently announced a new business alliance with
Spectrum Aeronautical LLC that offer new very light jets --
including the Spectrum 33 and Spectrum 40 -- for clients as part of
its new fractional jet ownership program. Set to launch in
September, Jet Source will enter the fractional jet ownership
market with three offerings tailored to suit the interests of
business, individuals and licensed pilots in private travel.
The fractional program was one of several announcements shared
by Frank Milian, President and COO, at a commemorative 10-year
anniversary evening reception last month at the company’s
"On our 10-year anniversary, I am thrilled to announce this
exciting new program with Spectrum," said Milian. "Our leadership
team has worked hard to identify exactly what partnerships and
offerings we want to bring to the fractional market. We feel
confident we created a formula for success. Spectrum’s
aircraft provide incredible fuel efficiency with the style and
pizzazz our clients crave. Building on this, the team came up with
three options that will be simple and cost competitive as we look
to bring this new offering to market."
Those options include fractional ownership shares; an Owner
Pilot Club, offering transition pilot training in a private
"members only" flying club; and prepaid Travel Cards allowing
customers to enjoy as many as six on-demand charter flights each
"We’re confident our clients will respond well to this new
fractional ownership program offered exclusively by Jet Source,"
said Ian Ewing, vice president of Aircraft Management Sales. "Now,
clients have more ways to fly with us. If they’ve experienced
chartered flight they will be able to enhance their experience as
an owner. Moreover, those with a pilot license can literally fly
with us in an entirely new light. We already have a roster of
pilots that will be thrilled to fly their very own high-powered
Looking ahead to 2008, Jet Source also plans to open a new,
state-of-the-art facility in Henderson, NV which will consist of
two 35,000 square foot hangars and an executive terminal. The
second location will offer aircraft charter, aircraft management,
maintenance, avionics, and aircraft sales/acquisitions.
Currently, Jet Source boasts 120,000 square feet of hangar
space, 35,000 square feet of office space, and a Fixed Base
Operation (FBO) with a luxurious executive terminal at its
headquarters in Carlsbad, CA at McClellan-Palomar Airport.
