Sharp focus on reliability leads to fourth 7X
Inside of a year, Planet Nine Private Air has inducted four Falcons into its fleet, a feat that has impressed Dassault Falcon Jet president and CEO Jean Rosanvallon. The latest addition has flown a mere 500 hours so far.
Planet Nine Private Air (P9PA) is placing a fourth Falcon 7X into service.

Van Nuys, California-based operator Planet Nine Private Air has added a fourth Falcon 7X to its Part 135 certificate.

The aircraft has flown fewer than 500 hours and is offered with the distinctive Planet Nine 14-seat luxury executive interior, with wi-fi and IFE from Swift Broadband.

“We are proud to be placing into service our fourth Falcon 7X just ahead of our first anniversary in June,” states co-founder and head of business development Matt Walter. “Our customers, whether flying for business or leisure, are attracted to the layout and quiet cabin of the 7X. With our sharp focus on operational reliability, we are steadily building up a strong base of returning clients.

“We are building trust in the industry, working with a rapidly expanding number of charter brokers, corporations, family offices and UHNWs who are choosing us primarily for flights from the west and east coasts of the USA to Europe, Russia and the Middle East. Flights are averaging nearly five hours per sector. Our premium business model centres around the Falcon 7X, and we are benefitting from the operational efficiencies and low carbon print associated with this type of aircraft.”

Director of sales Kirti Odedra adds: “Our winter bookings were strong and the remarkable short runway performance of the Falcon 7X gave us an advantage, allowing us to operate to and from airports such as Samedan, Chambery and Aspen. This summer we are looking forward to flying to Cannes in the south of France.”

Dassault Falcon Jet president and CEO Jean Rosanvallon says that Planet Nine has become a notable ambassador for the Falcon: “Bringing four aircraft into service, three of them under outright ownership, inside of a year, is very admirable.”

Dassault Aviation's recent acquisition of TAG Aviation's and ExecuJet's MRO facilities is expected to boost the level of support on offer.
