NEW YORK -- JetSmarter, the world's largest private aviation community, is now flying its first five fully-dedicated and branded Gulfstream IV-SP aircraft, as they continue to expand and improve travel options for passengers.

Traditionally, JetSmarter partners with private air carriers across the globe to provide its aircraft to customers. Now, working alongside aircraft owners, or those interested in acquiring aircraft, JetSmarter is elevating their passenger's travel experience by building its branded fleet.

The jets come with brand new interiors and five-star flight crews, serving a selection of curated in-flight cocktails in partnership with Pernod Ricard, as well as gourmet catering. Each aircraft is also equipped with fast and reliable 4G Wi-Fi, allowing passengers to browse the web, access email, and stream videos at any time with no interruption.

"It's our goal through our new, fully-branded aircraft, to create a class that is truly above first for our community," said Sergey Petrossov, Founder and CEO of JetSmarter. "Being able to customize our planes to our exact taste allows us to perfect our already reliable, premium travel experience."

The Owner program is a simple solution for owners that currently own aircraft and want to defray the cost, or new owners looking for tax benefits, without the hassle and expense of owning an aircraft. JetSmarter takes on the expenses associated with maintaining and running the aircraft and owners collect an hourly return.

Additionally, owners get a unique JetSmarter Owner membership that includes special perks and exclusive discounts for flying with JetSmarter. It's truly the industry's first turn-key solution for aircraft ownership.

JetSmarter is currently on-boarding Gulfstream IV-SP aircraft, but will diversify to more aircraft types in the future. Aircraft owners that are interested in participating in the program should contact JetSmarter at Owners@JetSmarter.com.

These aircraft have already taken to the skies, flying between cities like New York, Miami, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles. JetSmarter plans to expand their branded fleet to 30 more aircraft over the next year.

The aircraft is operated by JetEdge, an ARG/US Platinum and IS-BAO Stage 3 operator.

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. reports its Gulfstream G600, the second aircraft in the company’s dynamic family of all-new ultra-long-range, large-cabin jets, has begun U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification field performance testing.

"We continue to make steady progress toward certifying the all-new G600 later this year and beginning customer deliveries in 2019," said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. "With the exceptional performance we’re seeing from the five flight-test aircraft in this program, I am highly confident our clients will be impressed with the aircraft we deliver. Its high-speed range, superior comfort and unmatched efficiency have already exceeded our expectations. Even at this stage in its development, the G600 is garnering attention, with its award-winning interior and seats, increased range capability and performance at high speed. The recent type certification for the G500 is added motivation and inspiration for us to bring the G600 across the finish line and into the hands of our customers."

The Gulfstream G500 earned FAA type certification and its production certificate on July 20. Customer deliveries of the aircraft will begin later this year.

The longer-range G600, meanwhile, recently completed FAA certification for ice shapes and stall speeds testing. Since first flight, the five aircraft in the G600 flight-test program have accumulated more than 2,290 flight hours over more than 600 flights.

The G600, which made its first flight on Dec. 17, 2016, can fly 6,500 nautical miles/12,038 kilometers at Mach 0.85 and 5,100 nm/9,445 km at Mach 0.90. The maximum operating speed for the aircraft is Mach 0.925. The aircraft’s all-new interior earned top honors in Private Jet Design at the 2018 International Yacht & Aviation Awards.

TORONTO, Ontario -- Magellan Aerospace has signed a six year agreement with Pratt & Whitney to manufacture aluminum castings for their Next Generation Product Family (NGPF) of engines, powering the Airbus A320neo, Airbus A220 (formerly known as Bombardier C-Series), Embraer E2 series and Mitsubishi MRJ aircraft. The castings will be produced at Magellan’s facilities in Haley, Ontario, Canada and Glendale, Arizona, USA. The agreement is expected to generate approximately CDN $81 million in revenue for Magellan through 2023.

Haydn Martin, Magellan’s Vice President, Business Development, Marketing and Contracts said, "This new agreement will provide Pratt & Whitney with enhanced security of supply with Magellan internally dual sourcing these castings between two manufacturing facilities in Canada and the USA, significantly de-risking the supply chain. Magellan will utilize the latest in advanced sand casting technologies, specifically 3D sand printing and automated pouring to produce these components." Magellan is a world leader in the development and industrialization of advanced technologies in the aerospace sand casting industry.

"Pratt & Whitney looks forward to continued growth with Magellan Aerospace in signing this agreement," said Brandon Barrett, strategic sourcing manager at Pratt & Whitney. "Magellan is investing in the right technologies at both of its facilities to provide the complex castings for Pratt & Whitney’s NGPF engines."
