Oxford, CT / February 18, 2015 / Key Air, a leading national provider of best-in-class aircraft management and worldwide executive jet charter services is proud to announce its newest managed aircraft, the prestigious Gulfstream G650ER.
The G650ER is one of three new aircraft to join Key Air’s managed fleet within the first two months of the New Year attesting to the growth potential of the company under its recently appointed President and CEO, Alan DePeters.
Prominently regarded as the largest and fastest business jet, Gulfstream’s newest flagship, the G650ER also extends the nonstop reach of the industry’s highest performance long-range business aircraft. Flying at a top speed of Mach 0.90, the G650ER can easily carry eight passengers 7,365 statute miles nonstop. Key Air is one of only two aircraft management companies in the U.S. to operate this high-performance aircraft. The G650ER joins the company’s growing fleet of midsize to ultra-long-range charter managed aircraft.
“We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to manage this impressive aircraft for its owners,” said Key Air President and CEO, Alan DePeters. “The G650ER, along with the two newly added charter managed aircraft – the GIVSP and Falcon 2000LX – demonstrates Key Air’s solid infrastructure and the ability of the brand to attract new customers. We continue our commitment to provide clients with the highest levels of service deliverables customized for their individual needs.”
To support the growth to its expanding charter fleet, Key Air is pleased to announce the recent hire of Charter Sales professional Charlene Brett. With more than 22 years of Part 135 aviation experience, Ms. Brett brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Key Air’s Charter Sales Division. As a former Director of Road Show Services for a previous charter operator, she handled Wall Street accounts and IPOs of Fortune 500 companies. Her extensive experience working with retail clients as well as wholesale brokers and operators will be instrumental to the company’s charter team. Prior to joining Key Air, Ms. Brett directed the charter division of another operator managing a fleet of 17 aircraft.
“We could not be more excited about the growth that Key Air is experiencing,” commented Ron Muller, Key Air’s V.P. National Sales. “It has allowed us to attract and hire the caliber of aviation professional which Charlene Brett is recognized for in the industry. Her experience, dedication and commitment to client satisfaction will be an asset to the charter team as we continue to build upon our client base.”
