Planet Nine Private Air, the Van Nuys, California-based private charter operator and aircraft management company, has added a privately-owned Gulfstream G650 to its managed fleet.
The aircraft will be available for third party charter through its aircraft management division.
The aircraft’s owner selected Planet Nine Private Air (Planet 9) to professionally manage the aircraft, because of its capability to provide a fully-tailored service, offering transparency on costs, service and high reliability as paramount, said the company.
Fitted with 13 luxury seats, the 2015-built aircraft complements Planet 9’s own five-strong Dassault Falcon 7Xs, operating out of its Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California base.
The G650 will be joined by a sister model, the Gulfstream G550, from the same owner, in the next six weeks. Both will be offered for charter.
Matt Walter, co-founder of Planet 9 said, “This is a major endorsement for Planet 9 to be adding managed aircraft alongside our own fleet after just one year of operations. We pledge full transparency on costs, a tailored program throughout the year and will work closely with the owner to maximize the asset when available for charter.
In-house Gulfstream-trained maintenance technicians will support the G650.
The Gulfstream G650 offers a 7,000nm range, 14 hours’ flying time, based on a full complement of passengers flying. Its cabin is stylishly laid out in three zones to work, relax and rest. Cabin entertainment includes high speed KU band international wi-fi which is accessible via eight large iPad devices or from passengers’ own devices.
Planet 9 flies corporations, family offices and UHNWs from the West and East Coasts of the USA to destinations including Europe, Russia and the Middle East.
