Priester adds five new aircraft to its managed fleet


Priester Aviation added five new aircraft in the final quarter of last year to meet growing demand for its management service programmes covering both owner use (Part 91) and charter revenue (Part 135).

The additional aircraft, which included long-range, super-midsize, widebody and midsize options, have been based at five locations around the US. They are: a Bombardier Global 6000 at Chicago, a Gulfstream G500 in North Dakota, a Falcon 2000LXS in Florida, a Bombardier Challenger 300 in Michigan and a Learjet 45 in Oklahoma.

Priester Aviation president and CEO Andy Priester said: “These additions advance our goal of delivering incredibly high-quality, responsive services in key markets.” Demand is continuing to grow, he added. “More and more people recognise the unrivaled flexibility and benefits afforded by aircraft ownership and private charter flights.”

Founded in 1945, Priester Aviation offers a range of services including jet charter, aircraft management and aviation consulting. During that time its fleet has grown from seven to 75 aircraft. The most recent fleet additions follow a new management programme launched last summer with Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI) Parts & Leasing serves to streamline procurement and boost efficiencies.
