JetFlite International Launches Aircraft Refinishment Program

LONG BEACH, CA. November 16, 2011 –JetFlite International (JFI) has launched an Aircraft Refinishment Program that repairs and re-finishes existent components and materials with minimal replacing.

“The program really is an aircraft facelift for a fraction of the price an overhaul shop will charge,” said Bill Cripe, JFI’s chief executive officer. “Today, operators are facing aging aircraft while budgets for new interiors and paint are diminishing. This is a cost-effective way to address their concerns while downtime for their aircraft is minimal.” JFI dedicates a point-person "Expeditor" throughout the entire project to assure minimum downtime.

Refinishment services include re-plating metal surfaces, mirror repair or replacement, woodwork repair and restoration, soft furnishings and upholstery repair, cabinetry and hand trim revitalization, custom embroidery, galley appliances repair, seat belt re-webbing and buckle re-plating, refinishing or replacing cabin and lavatory accessories and interior to touchup painting and polishing. 

For nearly 20 years, JetFlite International (<file:///> has been a provider of aircraft management and charter services worldwide. Since 1998 JFI has offered aircraft maintenance on mid- to large-size jets, including Challengers, Citations and Gulfstreams. JFI maintains bases at Long Beach Airport (LGB) in southern California and Farmingdale Republic Airport (FRG) on Long Island, NY. JFI’s base in Long Beach handles the Aircraft Refinishment Program.
