Modesto receives 10 seat or more approval

Modesto City-County airport-Harry Sham Field, California-based operator Modesto Jet has received certification and capability to manage and fly FAR Part 135 aircraft with 10 seats or more.

The company’s air charter operation recently completed its comprehensive certification process by the FAA to operate jets with 10 seats or more. The thorough vetting will allow operations of a Challenger 605 and two Challenger 604 super midsize jets, which will be added to the company's operations specs. The '10 or more' certification allows longer flights for charter and managed-aircraft customers.

“This certification is the culmination of an excellent collaboration with our flight operations team and our local FAA FSDO,” says director of operations Scott Bertram. “We are looking forward to providing our clients with a greater range of travel options and services.

“This is a considerable milestone for Modesto Jet, as the company is now uniquely qualified to operate larger aircraft due to its strong maintenance and proven safety record.”

Modesto Jet currently operates a fleet of eight aircraft including PC-12s, King Airs, a Nextant jet and PC-24.
