Presidential Aviation, based at Fort Lauderdale Executive airport in south Florida, has expanded its fleet with the addition of a Gulfstream G500 configured for up to 18 passengers. The aircraft will be offered for private jet charter based out of Miami-Opa locka Executive airport.

The G500 features high-gloss dark wood with beige leather double-club seating for four passengers in the forward cabin, followed by a two-person club configuration opposite a four-person divan. Mid-cabin, the jet was designed with a four-place conference table, opposite a credenza with storage for in-flight working professionals. Aft, it features a stateroom complete with a VIP seat, a personal Airshow screen, pull-out dining table and an opposite three-person berthable divan. The aircraft also houses two fully enclosed lavatories, one forward (with a certified jump seat) and one aft for in-flight convenience.

Outfitted with Airshow 4000, Plex Entertainment and dual, in-flight movie viewing systems, the G500 is also equipped with Gogo wi-fi Internet and a MagnaStar 2000 Flight Phone, along with enhanced soundproofing for a quieter cabin experience.

For in-flight dining, the jet features a forward serving galley complete with a high temperature oven, multiple storage compartments and hanging glass racks. This aircraft sleeps seven comfortably. Newly painted, this G500 sports a blue and white exterior with multiple stripes and yellow accents, and offers three SecuraPlane external cameras for security.

Presidential COO Yoharner Echemendia says: “This ultra-long-range aircraft fills a much needed position in our charter fleet for those seeking over-the-pond, international flights for an entire group or team. We will be meticulous in managing the movements of this exquisite aircraft.”
