Las Vegas-based Thrive Aviation has added to its light jet charter fleet.

The 19th-largest operator based on fractional/charter flight hours is adding a factory-new Phenom 300.

It also marks a seeming expansion of Thrive into aircraft management.

Previously, it mainly focused on expansion via owned aircraft.

According to a press release, the Phenom 300 comes under a “management partnership with aircraft owner Christopher B. Munday, Munday Aviation LLC.”

“Thrive Aviation is poised to redefine the very essence of the aircraft ownership experience. This Phenom 300E is not just another aircraft in our managed fleet; it’s an embodiment of Thrive’s commitment to crafting elevated experiences that transcend the expectations of our clients. The addition of Mr. Munday’s Phenom 300E to Thrive’s managed fleet inaugurates our innovative and transparent aircraft management framework–An architecture that is built upon Thrive Aviation’s renowned reputation for safety, performance, optimization, and client experience,” said Rickey Oswald, Senior Vice President of Fleet Management at Thrive.

“Thrive’s innovation and focus on quality and excellence, along with their best-in-class systems and world-renowned Management team, make them the perfect partner for us in this exciting new venture,” said Christopher Munday.

Thrive officials declined to comment on additional plans to expand management.
