US aircraft management and private charter provider Priester Aviation has launched a parts procurement programme with JSSI Parts & Leasing for its managed fleet of jets.
JSSI P&L has more than 38,000 stock lines of inventory available to support owners and operators of virtually every make and model of business jet. Priester Aviation selected JSSI P&L's Supply Chain Solutions programme to provide its aircraft owners with a dedicated procurement team backed by a sophisticated procurement process, expansive inventory and global vendor network.
“Many of our managed aircraft already leverage JSSI, so this is a natural partnership,” says Priester Aviation VP of maintenance Dave Prescott. “Our customers will benefit from efficiencies in JSSI Parts & Leasing's extensive parts procurement and logistics support, freeing our team to focus on delivering the personalised services customers have come to expect and appreciate.”
Priester Aviation has evolved from flight training school into a multidisciplinary global aircraft management and on demand charter company. Its leadership torch passed to a third generation this summer with Charlie Priester transitioning to chairman emeritus, and his son, Andy, assuming the role of chairman and CEO. This new management programme with JSSI P&L serves as an ongoing example of dynamic leadership focused on continuous customer-focused improvements.
“JSSI has enjoyed a long relationship with Priester Aviation, and we look forward to working closely with its proven team to support parts orders, enhance maintenance planning and provide detailed cost projections for customers,” says CCO Jim Sellers. “We support 10,000 maintenance events every year, and now Priester Aviation's network of customers can leverage our expertise, buying power and industry relationships as we help expedite the sourcing of parts, drive cost savings and reduce downtime.”
