Chicago, IL – July, 2010 – Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), the largest, independent provider of hourly cost maintenance programs for the business aviation industry, announced they have signed an agreement with Executive AirShare, covering the engines on two Phenom 300s delivered by Embraer.
The P&W 535-E engines are enrolled on the JSSI Premium Program, which is the most comprehensive hourly cost engine maintenance program available. The JSSI Premium Program includes coverage of scheduled and unscheduled maintenance events, life limited components, the consultation and support of a JSSI technical advisor, future Airworthiness Directives, mandatory and recommended Service Bulletins, rental engines and more.
“It makes perfect sense to enroll on the JSSI Program when the aircraft engines are new, and it certainly made sense for Executive AirShare, because now they will know exactly what their maintenance costs will be, year after year, without any surprises,” stated George Kleros, Vice President, Technical Services at JSSI. “We are leading the way in offering programs for new engine models because buyers of these aircraft are demanding JSSI coverage. We have been working with Executive AirShare for years. They value our programs, so we are excited to be adding the Phenom 300 to their fleet of JSSI covered aircraft,” added Kleros.
Executive Flight Services, a subsidiary of Executive AirShare began operating the first Embraer Phenom 300 delivered in the U.S, earlier this year as part of their managed aircraft fleet. They are the only established fractional aircraft ownership company to offer both Phenom 300 and Phenom 100 aircraft, and JSSI offers hourly programs for both aircraft engine and airframe types.
“We analyzed the available programs, and JSSI came out on top. They offer flexibility and the exceptional level of service we need. We won’t be just another contract to them, and that is very important to us,” commented Keith D. Plumb, Executive AirShare President and Chief Operating Officer. “We are focused on supporting our clients with the best possible service, while growing our business for the future. Having our aircraft on the JSSI Program is a key component to achieving our goals,” added Plumb.
