VLJ Air Taxi Service Opens in South Florida

North American Jet Charter Group, LLC, today announced the delivery of an Eclipse 500 VLJ to Boca Raton to provide air taxi and charter service to business and leisure travelers.

Boca Raton, FL, June 06, 2008 --(PR.com)-- North American Jet Charter Group, LLC today announced the delivery of its first Florida-based Eclipse 500 Very Light Jet. Based at Boca Aviation at Boca Raton Airport (BCT), the 2 pilot / 4 passenger VLJ is available for charter services to the Bahamas and other regional destinations.

“We are very pleased to offer the South Florida market the first whole-plane VLJ air taxi service, “said Ken Ross, the company’s CEO and President. “The Eclipse is the ideal aircraft for people who want to travel to the islands or to destinations within 500 miles. Its low operating costs and light carbon footprint make it an affordable alternative to scheduled airline service and a great way to reach hard-to-reach destinations. And for people used to chartering larger jets, they’ll be astonished at the value.”

Phil Mathews, President of Air Partner, a leading global air charter provider with US headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, believes the Eclipse will greatly enhance the charter market in South Florida. He commented, “The Eclipse will undoubtedly bring the significant benefits of private charter to a new segment of travelers, while offering a very cost-efficient alternative for shorter trips to our existing customers.”

North American Jet Charter Group plans to expand its VLJ fleet to accommodate the increasing number of Eclipses being delivered throughout the United States. “Our expertise in managing and operating the Eclipse enables us to put aircraft on our Part 135 certificate in less than a week. We’re actively seeking additional aircraft to base in Florida and other parts of the country,” said Ross.

In June 2007, the company operated the world’s first passenger revenue flight on a VLJ. Since then, North American Jet has expanded its VLJ fleet to six, with 5 Eclipses based at Chicago Executive Airport.
