Charter Firm Buys Long-Range Business Jet

CI Jets has added a Dassault Falcon 7X jet to its fleet, the first heavy jet for the Camarillo charter company. The Falcon 7X will be available immediately to take passengers to the Americas, Canada and the Caribbean. Worldwide service will start in 2018. Sarah Oberman Bartush, chief marketing officer and director of business development, said the addition of the Falcon means the firm can provide service for clients looking to fly long distances, such as to Florida or New York. “Once we launch worldwide service, clients will be able to go non-stop to Europe and many other international cities,” Bartush said in a prepared statement. The Falcon 7X uses a digital flight control system that Dassault developed for its military fighter jets that provides more precise handling and reduces workload for the pilot. The aircraft has a wingspan of 85 feet and a range of 5,959 nautical miles. CI Jets is owned by Channel Islands Aviation and offers other aircraft management services in addition to charter flights.
