Planet Nine on cloud nine following Falcon addition
In the six months since it received its Part 135 AOC, Planet Nine Private Air has already achieved Wyvern Wingman status. Now it has added its a refurbished Falcon 7X, the third of its kind in the fleet.
Planet Nine's latest 7X has a newly refurbished interior.

Planet Nine Private Air (P9PA), based in Van Nuys, California, has introduced its third 16-seat Falcon 7X into service. Formed six months ago, the operator was accredited with Wyvern Wingman status in October.

"We are very proud to have achieved our initial goal of introducing three newly-refurbished 5,950nm ultra long-range Falcon 7X business jets into the market while assembling a world class group of pilots, crew members and operational ground support personnel since being awarded our Part 135 operating certificate in June,” comments co-founder and head of business development Matt Walter.

Ops director James Seagrim adds: “None of this would have been possible without the honest and impartial advice provided by Freestream CEO Alireza Ittihadieh, who successfully sourced, structured and negotiated all three aircraft transactions on behalf of P9PA. "We are very grateful for his expertise and counsel.”

Seagrim and Walter built theur reputations at Advanced Air Management. "It is no surprise to anyone that they have quickly bounced back with their new company," says Ittihadieh.

The Wyvern endorsement recognises Planet Nine's 'delivery of consistent and exceptional service and acknowledges the business has the infrastructure to support over 20 aircraft with a best in class finance function to deliver a seamless flight experience to their clientele'. Says Wyvern CEO Sonnie Bates: “Planet Nine has demonstrated a commitment to safety through its established safety management system. In its quest to achieve Wingman Certified status it has embraced the Wingman standard, and proven it goes above and beyond minimum regulatory requirements, allowing it to become an industry leader in safety culture."
