Elliott Aviation, a leading aviation services company, today announced the addition of a Citation Excel to their charter fleet. The aircraft features new paint and interior, Airshow cabin entertainment system and a nine-passenger configuration. The aircraft will be based in Des Moines, IA and will be available for flights by late 2017. The company is currently in the process of hiring individuals to crew the aircraft.
This launch will serve as a re-introduction for dedicated charter services based out of Des Moines. The aircraft will be stationed at the company’s newly constructed tenant and transient hangar. This increases Elliott Aviation’s charter fleet to four aircraft, including a Citation Sovereign, Nextant 400XT, and a Hawker 400XP.
“We’re excited to re-launch charter services in Des Moines,” said Brian Hahn, Vice President of Flight Services for Elliott Aviation. “Customers have been asking for someone to provide safe, reliable service in Des Moines and we feel this aircraft is a perfect fit for the market. We look forward to our team continuing to deliver on our 80-year perfect safety record.”
