West Palm Beach, Fla., October 29, 2018- Custom Jet Charters (CJC) has announced that its received FAA approval to manage and fly FAR Part 135 private jets with 10 seats or more, as well as the ability to operate flights to Europe, across the Pacific and throughout the world.  Expanding its fleet, Custom Jet Charters also announced the addition of a Legacy 600 now available for charter worldwide.

The new Legacy 600 jet provides premium comfort and privacy for up to 13 passengers, in 2 distinct seating areas, and has one of the largest baggage capacities in corporate aviation. It has a large-in-class cabin, lavatory and a spacious inflight-accessible baggage compartment.

Custom Jet Charters recently completed its comprehensive certification process by the Federal Aviation Administration to operate jets with 10 seats or more over ocean routes. The “10 or More” certification allows longer flights on larger CJC-flown aircraft, such as on the new Embraer Legacy 600, for charter or managed-aircraft customers. By obtaining this certificate, Custom Jet Charters is now planning to add three more heavy jets by May 2019.

To achieve the “10 or More” designation for Part 135, which covers charter and commercial operators, Custom Jet Charters pilots received training in international flight courses. They worked in conjunction with both the FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency, its counterpart across the Atlantic. The certification also opens up routes for customers to popular worldwide locations.

“With the addition of our 10 or more Part 135 certificate and our international operations certification, we are now well-positioned deliver a first-class worldwide private jet charter experience to our customers.” said Ralph Michielli, President of Custom Jet Charters. “This was accomplished by the incredible amount of hard work by our employees who worked together, enabling us to achieve this milestone for Custom Jet Charters.”
