Jet Logistics adds Hawkers for donor organ flights
The Hawker 800XP and 850XP are two of the nicest aircraft in the fleet; the cabin offers significantly more room, comfort and amenities unavailable in the light jets used by most organ procurement operators.

Jet Logistics, an FAA Part 135 IS-BAO Stage III certified and CAMTS-audited air carrier for air medical programmes, has added two new Hawker 850XP and Hawker 800XP jets to its AeroMedOPS programme and donor organ procurement and air ambulance-dedicated fleet. The aircraft are available for immediate charter by organ procurement organisations (OPO), transplant centres and other operators for supplemental lift.

"Jet Logistics has a distinguished history with the OPO market, and over the past 15 years we've successfully operated thousands of life-saving organ transplant missions. Our teams understand the high standards for safety, speed and comfort that doctors, medical crews and transplant programmes demand to perform their critical work," says group president Ashley Smith Jr.

Both Hawker jets are later model, low time aircraft offering updated, executive quality exterior paint and interior cabins, seating for up to eight passengers and advanced avionics and communications systems. The Hawker 800 series is well-suited for servicing both shorter haul, transcontinental and international missions with Jet Logistics' worldwide FAA Op Specs and global operations expertise. The aircraft are strategically located, the 850XP Midwest in Tulsa, Oklahoma and the 800XP East Coast in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Smith Jr adds: "Our company has been operating and servicing Hawkers for two decades, with a current fleet of five Hawker aircraft. Our flight crews and mechanics, including me with significant time in this type, know the aircraft extremely well. These are two of the nicest aircraft in our fleet, and the Hawker's cabin offers significantly more room, comfort and amenities including Gogo Internet, a fully enclosed rear lavatory and near stand-up cabin height, features not available in the light jets used by most OPO operators."
