Elite Jets broadens its Part 145 certificate
In June, the FAA added the Phenom 300 and Legacy 500 to Elite Jets’ maintenance department’s FAA Part 145 certificate, giving it capacity to perform maintenance work on those aircraft for companies and owners.

Elite Jets, a charter air service that operates from its private terminal at Naples airport in Florida, is expanding both its aircraft maintenance operations and its global footprint.

The company owns four Embraer Phenom 300s, an Embraer Legacy 500 and a Bell 407 helicopter, transporting business and leisure travellers to destinations across North, Central and South America. It also provides charter and management services for a Gulfstream G550 jet capable of long-haul flights to Europe and Asia.

In June, the FAA added the Phenom 300 and Legacy 500 to Elite Jets’ maintenance department’s FAA Part 145 certificate, and approved a trans-Pacific tabletop safety exercise, allowing Elite Jets to expand its long-haul flight capacity across the globe.

“This pair of recent FAA approvals now provides Elite Jets with true worldwide operations and an expanded industry footprint,” says EVP Stephen Myers, CAM. “We look forward to offering our clients even more opportunities to travel the world while also collaborating with additional industry partners and private aircraft owners.”

The service expansion is only the latest indicator of Elite Jets’ recent growth. A new aircraft management division is focused on growing the company through aircraft acquisition. In addition, it recently achieved Wingman status from global air safety auditor Wyvern, and is a platinum-rated charter company through ARGUS with IS-BAO Stage II.
