Van Nuys, California-based Planet Nine Private Air (Planet 9) has added a tenth managed aircraft to its fleet. An ultra long range Gulfstream GV became the ninth jet to be added onto its Part 135 AOC at the end of 2019. The GV is being readied for bookings now.

Offering a 6,200 nm range or up to 13 hours' flying time, the GV is Planet 9's third Gulfstream model, joining a G650 and G550. Its cabin is fitted with 14 luxury passenger seats, with a dedicated rest area for crew. Inflight entertainment is accessible via high speed Aircell with passengers having the option to use their own devices or connect with the seven onboard Rosen slimline LCD monitors. With a baggage capacity of 226 cubic ft, the aircraft can accommodate up to 25 medium sized suitcases.

“The addition of this remarkably high spec Gulfstream GV is an excellent way to round off what was a successful year for us,” notes Matt Walter, co-founder and director of business development.

Gulfstream Aerospace has just opened a dedicated MRO facility at Van Nuys, accommodated in a 43,000 sq ft hangar and with a complementary US$30 million parts and materials inventory.

This autumn Planet 9 was awarded ARGUS Platinum safety certification, closely followed by the endorsement of IS-BAO Stage I. Previously, it obtained Wyvern Wingman status, under its on-site flight leader programme.

Planet 9 operates and owns five Dassault Falcon 7X. It also has a Gulfstream G550, Gulfstream G650 and Bombardier Global 5000 available for third party charter, all under management for private owners. The company flies corporations, family offices and UHNWs from the west and east coasts of the USA to destinations including Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
