LOS ANGELES--()--Jet Edge International, one of the fastest growing aircraft management and charter companies in the U.S., has announced the addition of a Gulfstream IV-SP in New York, a Gulfstream IV and a GIII in Los Angeles and a Gulfstream 200, which will alternate its home base between Florida and California. With these recent additions, the Jet Edge fleet will total 18 large cabin and super mid-size Gulfstream aircraft and one Lear 45, which are all available for charter.
“Given the progression internally, operationally and in fleet size, Jet Edge is well-positioned to serve large cabin and super mid size private flyers for years to come”
“We’re extremely pleased to add these large cabin aircraft,” said Bill Papariella, president of Jet Edge International. “Jet Edge has secured 15 new aircraft in the past 12 months and is now one of the leading fleet managers of large cabin aircraft in the world today. Our fleet growth is a testament to our seasoned operations team, safety systems and internal sales culture; and provides our clients with a diverse fleet of well-appointed Gulfstream aircraft.”
Jet Edge also just completed a new round of investment funding to support the company’s rapidly growing fleet, enhance the Jet Edge operational platform and pursue future acquisitions. The news comes on the heels of Jet Edge’s joint venture with Hong Kong based Asia Jet, which made Jet Edge the exclusive aircraft operator for all Asia Jet aircraft under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) registry.
“We are excited to wrap up this round of funding, ensuring our company is well-positioned for substantial and sustainable growth,” continued Papariella. “Jet Edge’s operations framework is unmatched in the industry, and the funding enables us to support these exciting fleet additions, as well as several strategic operational and infrastructure changes that will help further strengthen our platform and fuel that growth.”
Jet Edge is also making industry-leading operational enhancements. The company is shifting to electronic flight bags (EFB), which streamline operations and ensures consistency for pilots. Jet Edge is one of only a few companies in the industry to go paperless, meaning flight routing, mapping, and other critical in-flight information can be updated in real time for flight crew. In addition, Jet Edge was recently recognized for the successful implementation of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO), and received a Platinum safety rating from the Aviation Research Group/US (ARGUS). With the previously held Wyvern Wingman recommendation, Jet Edge becomes one of only 24 global providers that have received these three important recognitions.
“Given the progression internally, operationally and in fleet size, Jet Edge is well-positioned to serve large cabin and super mid size private flyers for years to come,” added Papariella. “The company will also continue to identify and evaluate future growth opportunities in order to maintain its emphasis on providing safe, convenient and state-of-the-art private air travel.”
