Ventura Air Services adds two to Charter Lease Program
The Citation Excel is expected to be conformed to Ventura's charter certificate and operational by 1 July, with the Challenger 605 set to go at the start of August.
Ventura will handle all aspects of aircraft management, including maintenance, crew management and charter operations.

Ventura Air Services, a Farmingdale, New York-based provider of private jet charter and aircraft management services since 1955, has expanded its fleet with two new aircraft, a Challenger 605 and a Citation Excel. These bring its fleet total to 13 aircraft, comprising six Citation Excels and seven Challenger 604/605s.

The two aircraft will be managed under Ventura’s Charter Lease Program, designed specifically for aircraft owners looking to maximise their investment while alleviating the financial and operational burdens of aircraft ownership. Under the programme, aircraft owners can benefit from substantial revenue opportunities by making their aircraft available for charter when not in use. This not only offsets the costs of ownership but also ensures that the aircraft are maintained by Ventura’s in-house maintenance team, with the operator handling all aspects of aircraft management, including crew management and charter operations.

President Sam Wolf says: “We are excited to add two new aircraft to our fleet and are confident that our industry leading Charter Lease Program will help maximise the value and enjoyment of aircraft ownership.”

The Citation Excel was expected to be conformed to Ventura’s charter certificate and operational by 1 July, followed closely by the Challenger 605, which should be ready by 1 August.
