Neil Book, chairman of JSSI says: “We are proud that VistaJet has once again placed their trust in JSSI, this time extending our program coverage to their Challenger 850 fleet. We greatly value the relationship and strive daily to deliver the same level of quality and service to VistaJet, which they deliver to their customer base.”

“This agreement comes a year after our record-breaking VistaJet deal to enroll their fleet of 50 newly ordered Bombardier Global aircraft, and we embrace the opportunity to further develop our alliance as they continue to expand their global market presence,” adds Book.

Nick van der Meer, VistaJet’s accountable manager says: “JSSI has delivered on its promise to provide value to our operation. Adding coverage for our Challenger 850 aircraft in addition to the Global fleet will further enhance our maintenance tracking and help keep the Challenger 850 team prepared for any maintenance issues. In turn, we can ensure guaranteed aircraft availability to our customers, as well as save on the bottom line. We appreciate the advantage that JSSI provides VistaJet and continue to look forward to working with the entire JSSI team.”

The Bombardier Challenger 850 is powered two General Electric CF34-3B1 engines and by the Honeywell GTCP36-150 auxilary power unit (APU).
