Keystone Aviation Grows Its Fleet By 60 Percent

Keystone Aviation has had an expansive few months! With the help of Charlie Chamberlain, Keystone’s Managed Aircraft Sales Director, 4 aircraft have been added to Keystone’s charter fleet and 3 aircraft added to its privately managed fleet. These additions bring the total number of Keystone Aviation operated charter aircraft up to 13 and entire managed fleet up to 19.

Charter Additions:
Keystone Aviation operates Utah’s largest fleet of charter aircraft. Keystone’s diverse charter fleet consists of aircraft options for virtually every type of trip. The fleet includes everything from highly economical turboprops which are perfect for regional travel to large cabin jets that can fly worldwide.
The new charter aircraft additions include: a Lear 60 and TBM 850 based in Sun Valley, Idaho and a new-from-the-factory HondaJet and Pilatus PC-12NG based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Although Keystone is able to operate anywhere in the world, the addition of two aircraft based Sun Valley, Idaho brings a new advantage to charter customers flying to and from Idaho. All of the aircraft are great additions to the current fleet and bring something unique to the table.

The TBM 850 is a single-engine turboprop with seating for up to 5 passengers. It is one of the only TBM’s currently on a charter certificate in the Intermountain West. The TBM is one of the fastest turboprops which, combined with its short runway capability, makes it the perfect aircraft to get in and out of regional airports at an economical price.

 

The Learjet 60XR is a mid-size aircraft with seating for 7 passengers and can travel coast-to-coast non-stop. The Lear 60 has plenty of room to move around and stretch your legs – or sit back and enjoy the free Wifi.

 

The Pilatus PC-12NG is factory new and seats up to 9 passengers. Its speed, comfortable cabin and affordable cost make the PC-12 one of the most requested aircraft on the charter market.  Keystone Aviation already operates two PC-12s and with the constant demand for this aircraft, a third PC-12 will allow clients more flexibility and availability.

 

The HondaJet seats up to 6 passengers and is the most innovative, fastest, quietest and roomiest aircraft in its class. It includes a fully-enclosed lavatory and has a range of up to 1,400 miles.  The HondaJet’s superior performance will get you to where you’re going productively, economically and comfortably.

 

 

Private Management Additions: 

Keystone Aviation also manages aircraft for owners who choose not to make their aircraft available to charter customers.   Keystone recently added two Gulfstream G450s and another new-from-the-factory Pilatus PC-12NG to the list of privately managed aircraft.  These aircraft join our other private management clients which include a Pilatus PC-12, a Hawker 4000 and a Falcon 50.  Both of the Gulfstream G450s and the Pilatus PC-12NG plan to join the charter fleet in 2018.
