Executive AirShare Adds Phenom 300 Jet
Sept. 12, 2011, Buffalo, N.Y. - Executive AirShare, a regional fractional aircraft ownership company, today announced the addition of a new Embraer Phenom 300 light jet aircraft to its fleet, expanding its presence at Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF) to include three aircraft and seven full-time staff.
In addition to the Phenom 300, which was added earlier than planned due to significant demand, Executive AirShare and its wholly owned subsidiary, Executive Flight Services, operate a Phenom 100 entry level jet and a Beechcraft Super King Air 350 turboprop at BUF.
On Thursday, Sept. 29, Executive AirShare will unveil its newly revamped 4,400-square-foot private aviation terminal and 26,000-square-foot hangar at Buffalo Niagara International Airport as part of a special event entitled, “Wings, Wine & Wheels,” supporting Honor Flight Buffalo, a not-for-profit organization that each year sends our greatest generation’s soldiers to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Executive AirShare in October 2010 signed a long-term lease on the facility, which was originally built as the assembly facility for Curtiss P-40 Warhawk aircraft during World War II, and had been vacant since 2006. The company has made a significant investment transforming the facility, refurbishing and repainting the entire facility, adding high-efficiency lighting, heat, and constructing a new passenger terminal and office space.
“The response from the business community of Upstate New York and Southern Ontario has been tremendous,” said Buffalo native David L. Jones, Great Lakes/Mid-Atlantic regional vice president, Executive AirShare. “We are proud to offer affordable access to transportation that enables our hometown companies to grow their businesses and bring revenue and jobs back to the Buffalo-Niagara region.”
In addition to its Great Lakes/Mid-Atlantic operation in Buffalo, Executive AirShare serves shareowners in the Central U.S., operating a fleet of Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 and Beechjet 400A jet aircraft, and Beechcraft King Air 350 and C90B turboprop aircraft for shareowners in Kansas City, Mo., Wichita, Kan., Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Fort Worth and Dallas. Its subsidiary, Executive Flight Services, manages aircraft for owners from bases in Fort Worth, Dallas, Wichita, Kansas City and Buffalo.
