The Federal Aviation Administration has approved FlyExclusive as a parts manufacturer under Part 21 of the FAA’s Code of Federal Regulations.

The certification follows the Kinston, North Carolina-based flight provider’s previously announced Part 145 certification.

“The secret to our success is vertical integration. Having an MRO operation that holds Part 21 certification will help us further control the safety and quality of the experience we provide to our customers,” said Jim Segrave, Founder and CEO of flyExclusive.

He added, “It is easier to deliver on high expectations when you control what is going on behind the scenes. I am proud of our MRO team, who have put in the hard work to secure this certification.”

Part 21 certification gives the fifth-largest charter and fractional operator approval to build and sell products, articles, and parts on third-party aircraft in addition to its fleet of jets.

The company said, “The certification signifies a high standard of quality and safety across all aircraft.”

Its MRO team will perform these services from its six-hangar MRO facility on its headquarters campus.

The 12,000-square-foot facility runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
