Elevate Jet has added a Challenger 604 to its Part 135 certificate, giving clients ample options to travel on-demand, and strengthening the company's boutique charter and aircraft management services.
Aircraft ownership can be a cumbersome responsibility, but Seabrook, New Hampshire-based Elevate Jet's management team says it minimises risk and maximises cost savings and utilisation for any type of Part 135 or Part 91 aircraft.
”Overseeing the process of adding a variety of aircraft to our Part 135 certificate showcases just one of the boutique services that our expert team provides,” says Colleen McCauley, VP of aircraft management at Elevate Jet. “The Challenger 604 is one of the best values in the large luxury jet class, and we are proud to be able to bring it under Part 135 certificate.”
The Challenger 604 cruises at 543 mph and flies non-stop up to 3,400 nm, suited to international or coast-to-coast flights. As part of its two seating sections, the standard configuration of the Challenge 604 typically seats up to 10 passengers in fully reclining, swivelling chairs and adjustable sleeping accommodations on the aircraft divans. The Challenger also comes with the latest audiovisual systems and onboard wi-fi, making this aircraft a prime choice for any professional or business group on the move.
The Challenger 604 rounds out Elevate Jet's already diversified managed fleet, including the Citation Sovereign, Embraer 135LR and Falcon 7X. All aircraft are available for on-demand VIP, group and corporate shuttle charter services.
The newly refurbished Falcon 7X was also recently added to its managed fleet. This high-speed business jet has been under charter certificate since 2018 and, with its updates, now stands unrivalled in design, aesthetics and functionality, says Elevate.
As part of its aircraft management solutions, Elevate Jet's team oversaw the substantial interior upgrades from start to finish, supporting the complete project 24/7. Managing the refurbishment process included presenting financially sound ideas for redesign to the aircraft owner, relaying progress in real-time and monitoring all costs.
“Aircraft management is an art that goes beyond simply providing supplemental lift for our clients' aircraft,” McCauley comments. “The meticulous care we put into refurbishing the Falcon 7X further demonstrates Elevate Jet's commitment to detailed, boutique aviation services and showcases one of the highest calibre flight experiences in the industry.”
The Falcon 7X's new interior seating is beautifully upholstered with white leather, and fresh paint coats its exterior. The aircraft is now equipped with high-speed Gogo ATG-5000 wi-fi and satellite communication capabilities for in-air phone calls, making the 7X an ideal jet for business travellers. The operator also added a Citation Sovereign back in June.
