Aircraft charter and management firm Jet Edge International has added four Gulfstream planes to its fleet bringing it to a total of 19 aircraft.
Jet Fleet, headquartered at Van Nuys Airport, has secured 15 aircraft over the past year and has one the biggest large-cabin fleets in the world, President Bill Papariella said.
“Our fleet growth is a testament to our seasoned operations team, safety systems and internal sales culture; and provides our clients with a diverse fleet of well-appointed Gulfstream aircraft,” Papariella said in a prepared statement.
Jet Fleet will base a Gulfstream III and Gulfstream IV at Van Nuys, a Gulfstream IV-SP in New York, and alternate one Gulfstream 200 between California and Florida.
The privately-held firm also announced receiving $1.5 million in a new round of investment funding to go toward supporting the growing fleet.
