Jet Source, a full-service aviation firm, today announced the addition of a Lear 60 and King Air 300 to its fleet of managed and chartered aircraft. Now available for charter service, the new fleet additions have enhanced the company's offering for executive private jet travel. The new aircraft will be based at the company's headquarters, the McClellan-Palomar Airport (KCRQ) base in Carlsbad, Calif.

"We always aim to exceed our clients' expectations," noted Megan Cunningham, vice president of charter services. "The addition of the Lear 60 and King Air 300 will provide greater choice and flexibility for our charter clients, whether they are traveling for business or pleasure."

Lear 60

The Lear 60 is a popular mid-sized jet known for its ability to fly at a higher altitude than others in its class, offering passengers a smoother ride. The Lear 60 aircraft accommodates up to seven passengers and has an expanded baggage compartment that could accommodate an entire family's baggage and sports equipment for a winter ski vacation. There is a full galley and private lavatory, and on-board entertainment system with front and aft monitors. The aircraft comes equipped with an enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) and a traffic collision avoidance system (TCAS). The Lear 60 also has long-range, non-stop route capability of approximately 2,200 miles or six hours, such as a trip from Carlsbad to Washington DC.

King Air 300

The refurbished King Air 300 aircraft features club seating for seven, aft lavatory, and mini-galley for light meal preparation. The aircraft possesses large luggage capacity with a maximum weight of 1,150 lbs. The King Air 300 aircraft comes with a Global Positioning System (GPS) and has a trip capability of 1,300 miles or just more than four hours.

Jet Source's fleet expansion coincides at the start of the company's 10th year anniversary celebration. In 2008, Jet Source will open a new, state-of-the-art facility in Henderson, Nevada, that will consist of two 35,000 square foot hangars and an executive terminal.
