NORTH AMERICAN boutique ultra-long-range business aircraft charter operator, Planet Nine Private Air Limited (P9PA), added a third Falcon 7X, registered N919NE (msn 087), to its fleet in November, 2018.

The deal was arranged through aircraft broker and dealer Freestream Aircraft Limited and the Falcon 7X, in a 16-seat VIP configuration, is based in Van Nuys, California alongside Planet Nine’s other two Falcon 7X aircraft. Planet Nine’s co-founder and Head of Business Development, Matt Walter said: “We are proud to have achieved our initial goal of introducing three newly-refurbished 5,950 mile (9,575km) ultra-long-range Falcon 7X business jets into the market whilst at the same time assembling a world-class group of pilots, crew members and operational ground support personnel since being awarded our Part 135 Operating Certificate in June [2018].”

Planet Nine also achieved ‘Wyvern Wingman’ accreditation with safety risk management specialist Wyvern Limited in October, 2018.
