Jet Aviation increases safety focus on managed fleet

Jet card and charter operator Jet Aviation has signed a long-term deal with GE Aviation for a safety and fleet modernization program covering the private jets it manages

During the National Business Aviation Association’s annual convention in Las Vegas, Jet Aviation and GE Aviation said they have signed a long-term agreement for a comprehensive safety and fleet modernization project including C-FOQA.

The program covers Jet Aviation’s global fleet of some 300 aircraft, including those from Airbus, Boeing BBJ, Bombardier, Dassault, and Gulfstream. The Jet Aviation managed fleet is split between Part 135 and Part 91.

Downward price pressure on the charter and jet card market continues to favor consumers

Other trends include the pilot shortage, struggle of on-demand brokers to offer instant, guaranteed pricing, and desires of jet card buyers for high-touch, high-level service

 

While a shortage of pilots in business aviation has been pushing up crew salaries by as much as 20%, buyers of jet cards and on-demand charter can look forward to continued favorable pricing, according to executives attending Corporate Jet Investor’s annual Dealmakers Conference being held this week at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
