Gulfstream hands over first G650ER, Ebola Crisis Curbs Global Biz Av Growth

November 22nd, 2014

Gulfstream has delivered the first fully outfitted G650ER months ahead of schedule and says it hopes to handover the first all-new ultra-long-range business jet before the end of the year. The airframer originally planned to start shipments in 2015.

Gulfstream hands over first G650ER

“It’s a good day when you can deliver on your promises ahead of schedule,” says Gulfstream president Larry Flynn.

The handover to an undisclosed customer comes a month after the US Federal Aviation Administration certificated the extended-range version of its $64.5 million G650, which entered service two years ago – and six months after Gulfstream unveiled the longest-legged in-production business jet.

As passenger demand for air travel across all segments continues to increase, air traffic is sure to pick up dramatically by 2033. Global market forecasts released by Airbus, Boeing and industry analysts at Deloitte Aerospace and Defense predict air traffic will grow at nearly 5 percent annually due to a healthy up-tick in the world economy over the next two decades.

“Global Revenue Passenger Kilometers (RPKs) are expected to grow at about 4.5 to 5 percent per year, which is a little bit above the historic norm,” said Deloitte Global and U.S. Aerospace and Defense Leader Tom Captain in an interview with Avionics Magazine. “But that can be explained because of the wealth-creating economies in parts of the world that haven’t had a history of air travel.”

This is a great article about catering on private aircraft. Gus Lira, Vice President at JetOptions says “We consider catering as one more of the important facets to your private jet charter experience. At JetOptions, when ordering catering, we first insure that the order details are correct and verified by our clients. Then, we corroborate that the order is in fact exactly what has been ordered, and lastly we go over the serving details with the flight attendant. Catering is one of the many services we provide where we know attention to detail and follow through will enhance your trip.”

Private jet dining and catering is an important detail when chartering through JetOptions

Any regular airline passenger will tell you there is a special place in hell reserved for aeroplane food, but when you are paying upwards of $8,000 an hour to charter a large-cabin private jet, bad food is something that can no longer be excused.

There are a number of problems with serving food at 40,000 ft. For starters, your taste buds become less perceptive, as you lose your taste of salt by up to 50 per cent (although for newer private jets that have a lower atmospheric pressure, this is less of an issue). Then there is the low humidity of the cabin, which weakens your sense of smell – and further diminishes your ability to taste – and can cause any food on board to dry up.

A skilled chef can get around these problems by seasoning their food with sea salt, making better use of sauce and packing their recipes with rich ‘umami’ flavours, using ingredients such as soy sauce, shiitake mushrooms and slow-cooked stocks. But cooking for private jet passengers is not only about flavour, it is more importantly about hygiene and safety.

Gulfstream Manufactures 100th G650, Private Aviation Demand Is On The Rise

November 20th, 2014

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced today that it has manufactured the 100th G650. The ultra-long-range business jet was delivered to a customer on Nov. 14, 2014. You can charter a Gulfstream G650 from JetOptions.

Gulfstream Manufactures 100th G650

“The production of the 100th G650 is a testament to the demand for this amazing aircraft,” said Larry Flynn, president, Gulfstream. “It truly set a new world standard for performance, range, speed, safety and comfort when it entered into service in December 2012. The completion of the 100th aircraft also speaks volumes about the skilled employees who build these planes.”

The G650 was announced on March 13, 2008, and took its first flight on November 25, 2009. The aircraft was certified by the Federal Aviation Administration on September 7, 2012, and by the European Aviation Safety Agency on December 21, 2012.

Gulfstream delivers to customer 100th G650

The aircraft can fly near the speed of sound, with a maximum speed of Mach 0.925. It has a range of 6,000 nautical miles/11,112 kilometers at Mach 0.90 or 7,000 nm/12,964 km at Mach 0.85. It can connect passengers nonstop from London to Los Angeles and Beijing to New York.

“Since it entered service, the G650 has proven it is a performance leader,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Gulfstream. “The G650 has claimed 42 speed records and secured an around-the-world speed record. It’s more fuel-efficient than many other aircraft, offers customers one of the most comfortable cabin experiences and is equipped with industry-leading safety features.”

The G650 has the largest business-jet cabin and provides passengers with wider seats, more aisle room and the ability to control the cabin entertainment, temperature and lighting with a smart device, such as an iPhone® or iPod®. The large windows, quiet cabin and low cabin altitude improve comfort and reduce fatigue. Passengers have the ability to work, connect to the Internet or relax before arriving at their destination.

Private Jet Services Index Shows Strong Increase In Third Quarter Of 2014

Private aviation demand is on the rise, according to the latest Aviation Demand Index, released by Private Jet Services (PJS) last week.

Private aviation has seen an 11% increase in qualified demand in Q3 over Q2 of this year, with a 6% increase in the same time period for private aviation trips flown. PJS has also seen a 56% increase in the number of inquiries for private aviation services.

It’s likely that the steady increase in demand is a result of a combination of continued growth throughout the economy and the unique service offerings that Private Jet Services offers. Gross domestic product in the economy as a whole has expanded at a seasonally adjusted rate of 3.5% in Q3, a significant rate, though down slightly from the 4.6% growth of Q2.

Keep in mind that these flights exist because someone else has already chartered a flight. This means you are more than likely going to be flying under the of the original customer’s flight.

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. recently delivered the first fully outfitted G650ER business jet to a customer, ahead of the 2015 projected delivery date.

This aircraft delivers speed and range, providing passengers a world-class travel experience. The G650ER, by all definitions, is the industry leader.”

Gulfstream announced the G650ER in May of this year. The aircraft received type certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration five months later.

Cessna targets Chinese Citation X+ and Sovereign+ certification for early 2015

November 15th, 2014

Cessna says it is on track to receive Chinese certification for both the Citation X+ and Sovereign+ during the first quarter of 2015.

Cessna received US FAA certification for the Cessna Sovereign+ in December 2013 and for the Citation X+ in June 2014.

The FAA’s online register currently shows that there are around 10 Citation X+ and around 30 Sovereign+s currently in operation.

“Both the Citation X+ and Sovereign+ are extremely well-suited for the China market as they combine excellent performance, large cabin comfort, and superb acquisition and operating costs,” said Scott Ernest, president and CEO of Textron Aviation. “They both have a range in excess of 3,000 nautical miles, which means the whole of Asia is one flight away.”

Textron Aviation has a significant presence at this year’s Airshow China in Zhuhai, with four aircraft appearing on static display.

Focus on the UK

British Business and General Aviation Association (BBGA) CEO Marc Bailey says business aviation is facing external pressures during potential growth in the UK.

It is interesting when you look at the industry recovery figures throughout Europe. There are pockets of potential improvement in one or two areas and others where the growth has still not returned to where we were in 2011. What is quite ironic is the way the UK government is complaining about the potential

European surcharge of £1.7Bn to fund other European economies who have not managed their finances in a prudent way. If you stop and look at what is being proposed by certain government agencies to impact the business aviation market, one has to wonder if it is actually just the same unfairness being applied to our sector.

The Italian fiasco

Before I show you what I am talking about, I would like to remind the reader of what happened in another member state over the last couple of years.

In Italy, a decision was made to increase the taxation on business aviation activities. In this case, it was very clear that no economic impact assessment was made to determine the market impact, nor was any analysis undertaken regarding the projected tax yield from the policy change. Even though the proposed changes were watered down within six months, the market dropped by 17% in terms of operations into the country – a share that was never recovered because confidence was lost.

According to a new analysis from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), global air travel demand rose 5.3 percent in September over the same month last year.

Demand was measured in revenue passenger kilometers (RPKs).

This continues the positive growth trend for passenger demand even though the performance was slightly below the August year-over-year rise of 6.3 percent. September capacity rose 5.1 percent and load factor rose 0.2 percentage points to 80.3 percent.

This means more crowded airports and longer lines. One more reason to fly private with JetOptions.

The General Aircraft Manufacturers Association (GAMA) recently released the shipment report of general aviation aircraft for the third quarter, and it was generally positive.

Overall shipments increased 5.7 percent, to 1,678 units, and billings rose 4 percent, to $16 billion. Business jet shipments were up 9.3 percent—about the same as piston-engine airplane shipments. Turboprops were the only weak category, with shipments down 3.7 percent.

The 99 Problems With Flying Commercial Instead of Flying Private with JetOptions, Vice Media head blasts NetJets on Twitter, Dassault Falcon 50 First Flight Anniversary

November 9th, 2014

The 99 Problems With Flying Commercial or 99 More Reasons to Fly Privately With JetOptions 

99 More Reasons to Fly Privately With JetOptions

Funny and on the nose article by Matt Meltzer on Thrillist about some for the many problems with flying commercial nowadays. You can avoid all of these problems by chartering a private aircraft from JetOptions:

These days, flying is right up there with going to the dentist and doing your taxes on the list of things people hate. All the pain, but no free toothbrush or refund check. Between awful people at TSA, flight attendants who hate you, and never-ending delays, it’s a wonder anyone ever goes home for the holidays.

And while there are probably a thousand things that make flying absolutely awful, we narrowed it down to the worst 99.

  1. Crying babies. Screaming babies. Babies who look at you the wrong way. All babies, pretty much.
  2. Anyone taking up too much overhead bin space with a bag they were too cheap to check
  3. And justifying it by saying “They ALWAYS lose my luggage”
  4. The airlines actually losing your luggage
  5. When your flight arrives at gate A2, your connection in 10 minutes will 100% be at gate Z79
  6. People who stand on moving walkways when you only have those precious 10 minutes. Or ever.
  7. The dude taking a conference call from the toilet stall
  8. Those a**holes whose nut allergies have ruined peanuts on planes for everybody
  9. Kids kicking the back of your seat, and unapologetic parents
  10. Boarding passes that’re completely indistinguishable from the Burger King receipts in your pocket
  11. People don’t actually look like ants AT ALL
  12. The guy who should’ve been required to buy two seats asking if he can put up the armrest

Vice Media head blasts NetJets on Twitter:

Shane Smith, the co-founder and CEO of Canada-based Vice Media, has tweeted Warren Buffett to say that NetJets should be “shut down” after the “terrible level of service” he received when flying on a NetJets-owned private jet with his family.

NetJets, a provider of fractional jet ownership, has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway since 1998.

Smith – who has over 110,000 followers on Twitter – also replied to a number of people that tweeted him, describing the company as “garbage,” “criminal” and “scandalous.”
