Modesto Jet receives FAA approval to operate jets with 10 seats or more


Modesto Jet has announced its certification and capability to manage and fly FAR Part 135 aircraft with 10 seats or more.

Modesto Jet’s air charter operation recently completed its comprehensive certification process by the Federal Aviation Administration to operate jets with 10 seats or more.

This will allow operations of a Challenger 605 and two Challenger 604 super-midsize jets which will be added to the Ops Specs.

The “10 or More” certification allows longer flights on Modesto Jet flown aircraft for charter and managed-aircraft customers.

“This certification is the culmination of an excellent collaboration with our Flight Operations team and our local FAA FSDO,” said director of operations Scott Bertram. “We are looking forward to providing our clients with a greater range of travel options and services.

“This is a considerable milestone for Modesto Jet, as the company is now uniquely qualified to operate larger aircraft due to their strong maintenance and proven safety record.”

Modesto Jet currently operates a fleet of eight aircraft including PC-12s, King Airs, a Nextant Jet and PC-24.
