“We are proud to be part of an exciting new chapter for this remarkable, class-leading aircraft,” said Chris Hand, Clay Lacy’s Senior Vice President for the Northeast Region. “Many of our private jet owners have discovered the Kodiak to be a perfect complement to their business and personal travel needs, whether for short shuttle trips or flights to remote or hard-to-access destinations.”

Jet Linx Grounds Fleet And Dedicates All Employees For Its Annual Safety Summit
Private Aviation Leader Advances Safety Standards That Exceed Those Mandated By The FAA
Jet Linx, currently the third largest aircraft management company (FAA Part 135) in the United States, reinforced its unwavering commitment to developing, implementing and furthering the private aviation industry's most rigorous standards during its annual Jet Linx Safety Summit. In order to focus solely on best safety practices and standards of excellence that exceed governmental regulations and guidelines, Jet Linx suspended all retail flight operations from 8:00AM to 5:00PM (Central Time) to enable and empower all of its employees to collaborate together to further its core operating tenant, safety.
The daylong Summit is the culmination of a weeklong series of rigorous assessment exercises, preparedness practices, roundtables and training programs that Jet Linx conducted with all of its executives, employees, pilots, client services and partners in order to evaluate and advance all safety and related procedures and protocols, standards and practices. The Summit was developed and conducted by the Company's executive leadership, as well as external industry experts and specialists, at its National Operations Center in Omaha, Nebraska and 14 local Base locations.
"Our commitment to assurance and safety has been a cornerstone since our inception in 1999. Governmental and regulatory standards are essential, imperative and mandatory, but we consider these standards to be merely a baseline, as we hold ourselves accountable to far more aggressive, exacting and meticulous safety principles," said Jamie Walker, President & CEO of Jet Linx. "One can either adhere to and comply with established standards or continually strive to create new principles and tenets that transcend the norm, and that is both our credo and our mandate at Jet Linx. It is for this reason that we invest substantial efforts, energies and financial resources on a continuous and ongoing basis to provide our aircraft owners and members with the assurance and peace of mind that they are flying with the finest team that develops, implements and upholds the leading standards in the private aviation industry."
For example, the number of days off per quarter for pilots is nearly twice the amount required by the Federal Aviation Administration. Jet Linx also offers additional computer-based training to complement ground training, which exceeds required hours by 50% when combined with classroom instruction. In addition, the company manages and maintains a standalone certification and training program for its pilots, mechanics and flight coordinators. Jet Linx also provides training for Airline Transport Pilot certificates for co-pilots, which surpasses the FAA requirements for commercial certificates. Jet Linx pilots do not self-dispatch like many other FAA Part 135 operators; instead, the company maintains a release process for all flights to ensure operational control and risk mitigation for each flight. This process is conducted through the use of Flight Coordinators, Maintenance Control and a computer algorithm checklist program incorporated into a proprietary, industry-leading, FlightRisk assessment system that Jet Linx co-developed to ensure optimal safety through predictive analytics.
"While there are only a couple of private aviation operators the size of Jet Linx, we all have a singular goal, which is to provide the safest flight experience for all concerned," said Mr. Walker. "I hope that all of the other operators, regardless of their size and resources, will join us in taking a day each year to ground their fleets and empower their employees to come together to develop, implement and advance the world's finest and most rigorous safety standards for the private aviation industry. It's an absolute necessity, and Jet Linx will be pleased to support this effort so we can share best practices with our peers as well as learn from them."

JetSmarter Makes Private Flying Even More Accessible With New Pay-As-You-Go Option
The private aviation community extends their flight services to the public with the launch of new pricing model
JetSmarter, the world's largest private aviation community, announces that they are extending their flight services to the public with a pay-as-you-go option.
This flexible, no-strings-attached model will give all app users access to JetSmarter flight services, without the commitment and annual fee of membership.
A market leader in the flight-sharing economy, JetSmarter democratized private aviation by making private jet travel affordable and accessible to its member community. Now, JetSmarter is opening their flight services to the masses; giving even more people the opportunity to experience aviation as it was meant to be.
As flight availability is directly tied to the number of people crowdsourcing flights, pay-as-you-go access will grow flight options exponentially by enabling anyone using the JetSmarter app with the ability to initiate an entire flight, pay only for the seats they need and share the rest of the aircraft with the community – saving thousands compared to traditional private travel.
Founder and CEO, Sergey Petrossov, explains what this means for existing members; "With more users to initiate custom flights, the JetSmarter community will continue to grow; ultimately driving the creation of new routes and flight frequency. With JetSmarter's flight inventory determined by the flying community, both members and non-members alike will benefit from the increase in flight creation."
With this access, users can book individual seats at market non-member rates, as well as enjoy the ability to create shared and private flights, backed by JetSmarter's low-price guarantee. Flight creation – previously only available to members – gives fliers the freedom to select the aircraft, departure time and the number of seats needed; and save thousands by sharing extra seats with fellow fliers.
Crowdsourcing flights is easy with the app's newest "share" button feature; which lets users share their created flight with anyone - members and non-members alike - via text, email, social media and more. Additionally, flight credits are rewarded to users who refer other non-members to book seats.
For more frequent fliers, the JetSmarter membership – which starts at $4,950/year – proves to be a valuable option, as members receive significant seat discounts, priority flight availability and access to luxury lifestyle benefits, 24/7 concierge, exclusive events and other perks.

Traveling Through LAX Gets A Whole New Meaning For JetSmarter Members
Membership now includes access to 'The Private Suite' with planeside BMW transportation, private TSA and Customs, and first-in-the-USA private terminal service
The world's largest private aviation community, JetSmarter, is adding a new offering to its ever-growing menu of lifestyle benefits – this time for commercial airport travelers. JetSmarter membership now includes complimentary access to The Private Suite at LAX for a head-of-state-style travel experience.
The Private Suite at LAX is a private terminal situated away from the main airport traffic, offering onsite TSA as well as Customs and Immigration screening for commercial fliers, with no lines. Guests enter the airport via a gated entrance and are escorted to their own well-appointed suite complete with a stocked food pantry, private bathroom, two-person daybed, runway view, and on-call attendant. As guests unwind and enjoy the comfort of their suite, all check-in formalities are attended to and luggage is hand delivered to the planeside crew. When time to board, guests go through private pre-flight TSA screening and are driven across the airfield directly to their waiting aircraft.
Inbound passengers landing at LAX are met planeside and driven across the airfield to The Private Suite. International travelers clear Customs and Immigration in a private onsite lounge just steps from their waiting car and the gate leading out of the airport.
The service is available to those traveling domestically and internationally, both in and out of LAX.
"We've found that many of our members fly private jets on short-haul trips around the US. However, those same customers tend to utilize commercial airlines and the first-class cabin when they head overseas. JetSmarter is a great match for The Private Suite. Their members are searching for ultimate ease and seamless logistics, and we've been able to accomplish that at one of the Nation's busiest airports," said The Private Suite's Co-Founder Joshua Gausman.
