Citation Excel Based Out of Van Nuys Airport Now Available for Charter

Santa Barbara, Calif. – September 12, 2017 – Silver Air, the private jet manager and charter operator, has added a Citation Excel to its expanding fleet of managed jets in the United States, furthering the company's presence and availability in the Los Angeles basin. 

Leading with its PURE Management model, Silver Air continues to grow strategically while serving an expanding charter base and more owners who are benefiting from the company's owner-advocacy approach. 

"As we continue to thoughtfully expand our managed and charter aircraft in the LA Basin we are excited to add a beautiful Citation Excel based at our Van Nuys facility," said Chuck Stumpf, Silver Air executive vice president. "The Citation Excel is on certificate and ready for immediate charter."

Silver Air's Citation Excel is a mid-size, mid-range jet ideal for business trips or personal travel around the country. Complete with well-appointed, roomy cabin designs for conducting business or relaxing en route, the Citation Excel features complimentary in-flight domestic Wi-Fi, as well as a full service galley featuring a high-end assortment of DEAN & DELUCA snacks and select Central California wines.

Silver Air's PURE Management model treats jet owners as partners rather than assets, creating quality management plans at the best value. Unlike traditional jet management companies that act as multiple service providers, Silver Air does not profit from selling fuel, maintenance, hangers or other fixed costs back to jet owners. Instead, Silver Air expertly manages the multiple service vendors on the owner's behalf ensuring a cost effective and transparent relationship.

Silver Air's fleet features light to large-cabin jets including: Gulfstream G450, GIV-SP, GIV, Dassault Falcon 2000, Cessna Citation X, Lear 60, Beechjet 400A, Citation CJ3, Citation CJ2, and Phenom 100 models. Silver Air's charter operations have earned the ARGUS Platinum Rating for their demonstration of the industry's highest safety practices.
