Van Nuys Gulfstream joins Silver Air fleet
Transparent aircraft management with no mark-ups on fuel, maintenance and fixed costs. This is the model that Silver Air uses to attract new managed aircraft onto its PURE programme.

Silver Air has signed a 16-seat newly renovated Gulfstream GV onto its PURE Jet Management programme, based in Van Nuys, California and available to charter for global operations.

The aircraft has new paint and an updated interior and is capable of flying anywhere in the world, including nonstop flights to Beijing or New Zealand from California. The GV also incorporates business amenities including international and domestic inflight wi-fi and a four-seat conference table for working en route.

"We are excited to bring this beautiful GV to the LA market for charter," says Chuck Stumpf, Silver Air president of business development. "The GV is a truly global aircraft, and brings more than 6,500 nm range to our customers worldwide. It is a welcome addition to our fleet in Los Angeles."

Silver Air says that its PURE Management model treats jet owners as partners rather than assets, creating quality management plans at the best value. Unlike traditional jet management companies that can act as multiple service providers, it claims not to profit from selling fuel, maintenance, hangars or other fixed costs back to jet owners. Instead, it manages the multiple service vendors on the owner's behalf ensuring a cost effective and transparent relationship.

Silver Air manages and operates privately owned aircraft from bases throughout the US and offers what it says is the only unrestricted charter availability on a Boeing Business Jet. Its fleet features other light to large cabin jets from Gulfstream, Dassault, Bombardier, Embraer, Cessna, Hawker and Beechcraft.

Silver Air's charter operations have earned an ARGUS Platinum rating and the company is currently IS-BAO Stage II compliant. It also became a member of the Air Charter Safety Foundation in March this year.
