Southern Sky Aviation, a charter, maintenance, management, FBO and sales company headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, has added a 2004 Beechcraft Premier I to its charter and management fleet. The aircraft is based at Mobile International airport in Mobile, Alabama. This addition to the fleet will help Southern Sky meet the needs of its customers in the US southeast.

“The Premier I is a great addition to our fleet; with its spacious cabin and impressive speeds, it will provide a great regional travel option for our passengers,” says Southern Sky charter division VP Barry Lambert. “We currently operate a Citation 560, two Citation XLS and a Citation Sovereign. Demand for all aircraft in our fleet has been robust.”

The Premier I is a good regional travel option for up to six passengers. It offers one of the largest cabins within its class with ample headroom, a galley area for refreshments, as well as a private enclosed lavatory. The plane also has a substantial baggage storage capacity of 55 cubic ft.
