Phenom 300 operator GrandView Aviation has cracked Argus Traqpak’s list of the top 30 Part 135 charter operators. Over the past 90 days, the Maryland-based operator completed over 1,500 flights accumulating over 2,000 flight hours. It recently opened locations at Van Nuys Airport in California and Hanscomb Field in Bedford, Massachusetts.
While GrandView’s membership program doesn’t guarantee availability, its owned fleet enables late-notice flight requests since there is no owner approval.
Its Phenom 300s have seven seats in the passenger cabin and high-speed Wifi from Gogo Business Aviation.
“To rank in number 29 of charter operators nationwide is an incredible achievement by our team,” says Jessie Naor, Chief Operating Officer at GrandView.
The company is also one of the nation’s leading jet operators in the organ transplant industry. So far, in 2021, GrandView Aviation has transported over 100 transplant surgical teams and life-saving donor organs.
There are currently 11 Phenom 300s. Plans call for additional aircraft and locations in 2021 and into 2022.
