Fleet additions and new bases mark Grandview for growth
Fleet and base expansion combined with a surge in pilot and operations hirings enables the growing private charter operator to better serve burgeoning demand for VIP clients and organ transplant missions.
GrandView's fleet of Phenom 300s grew by three during 2Q22.

US Part 135 operator GrandView Aviation has grown its fleet of Embraer Phenom 300 super light jets by three during the second quarter of this year to a total of 17. This month the company has also opened new bases at Teterboro airport in New Jersey and Reno Tahoe International airport in Nevada, bringing the total to 10 US bases coast to coast, including locations in Baltimore/DC, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles and Phoenix.

“I’m thrilled to celebrate the further expansion of our fleet with this latest delivery as we progress toward our goal of more than 20 aircraft by year end,” says president Jessie Naor. “We are truly living our mission of setting the new standard in private aviation. Opening new bases in Teterboro and Reno this month, with three more planned by year end, enables us to better serve the transportation needs of our private charter passengers and organ transplant teams across the US.”

GrandView was recently acquired by Global Medical Response (GMR) and operates under AirMed International, part of the GMR family. New parent company investment is accelerating the charter operator’s already explosive 2022 growth plans.

“The impact of these new aircraft and bases are far reaching,” adds AirMed International president Denise Treadwell. “Through the addition of each new aircraft and operation, GrandView increases access to life-saving organ transplants for patients around the nation and to safe and reliable charter services for our VIP clientele.”
