CJC Legacy approved for far-reaching flights
Custom Jet Charters worked closely with the FAA and EASA to train its pilots and meet '10 or more' certification, which permits longer flights on larger aircraft. President Ralph Michielli says it opens up global ops.
President Ralph Michielli is excited at the prospect of worldwide charter.

Florida-based Custom Jet Charters (CJC) has received FAA approval to manage and fly FAR Part 135 private jets with 10 seats or more, as well as the ability to operate worldwide. The operator is also expanding its fleet with the addition of a charter-ready Legacy 600. CJC's Legacy 600 seats 13 across two cabin zones and boasts a large baggage bay.

The '10 or more' certification from the FAA permits longer flights on larger aircraft, for charter or managed-aircraft customers. To achieve the certificate, CJC pilots received training in international flight courses, working in conjunction with the FAA and EASA. The certification also opens up routes for customers to popular worldwide locations. Now that it has obtained this certificate, CJC plans to add three more heavy jets by May 2019.

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