Feb 18 2019

WHEELING, Ill. (February 18, 2019)  — Priester Aviation, LLC, continues to grow its fleet offering with the addition of eight new aircraft to serve its expanding private aviation clientele coast to coast.

“The new jets bring Priester’s global fleet to more than 70 aircraft to support the increased demand,” said Andy Priester, president and CEO of Priester Aviation.  “Our robust infrastructure allows us to add these jets under both our owner use program (Part 91) and charter revenue program (Part 135), which offers our clients the ultimate flexibility.”  

Global fleet growth continues to be a strong focus for Priester, with multiple jets added in Dallas, Houston, Cincinnati, New York; Atlantic City, NJ; Long Beach, CA and Chicago.  

The new aircraft include:

  • Two Houston-based Challenger 604s

  • Dallas-based Falcon 2000LX and LearJet 45XR

  • Cincinnati-based Gulfstream G280

  • New York-based Gulfstream G550

  • Atlantic City-based Hawker 800XP

  • Long Beach-based Gulfstream G200

  • Chicago-based Falcon 2000

“We’ve increased our fleet to serve several of our strategic growth regions,” said Priester. “Specifically, both Dallas and Houston are key market opportunities for us, and we’ve been able to capitalize on the increased interest in aircraft management and private charter flights.”

Clients can book private flights through Priester’s on-demand service or through its all-new Centerline jet card, which offers guaranteed availability, no ferry fees and simplified pricing for private travelers.
