G650 joins Planet Nine Private Air’s charter line-up

0

A privately owned Gulfstream G650 has been added to Planet Nine Private Air’s managed fleet. The company’s aircraft management division will offer the aircraft for third-party charter.

The aircraft was built in 2015 and features 13 seats. Planet 9 says it is a low-time aircraft. The same owner has also chosen Planet 9 to offer their Gulfstream G550 for charter. That aircraft is due to join the fleet in the next six weeks. Planet 9 already operates five Dassault Falcon 7Xs from its base in Van Nuys, Los Angeles, California.

“This is a major endorsement for Planet 9 to be adding managed aircraft alongside our own fleet after just one year of operations,” said Matt Walter, co-founder of Planet 9. “We pledge full transparency on costs, a tailored programme throughout the year and will work closely with the owner to maximise the asset when available for charter.”

With the arrival of the G650, Planet 9 has engaged Gulfstream-trained maintenance technicians in-house to support the type.

The G650 offers a range of 7,000 nautical miles, or 14 hours’ flying time, based on a full complement of passengers. Its cabin is laid out in three zones for work, relaxation and rest. Cabin entertainment includes Ku-band international wi-fi, which is accessible via eight large iPads or from passengers’ own devices.
