First Wing, An Eagle Creek Company, Adds Sixth Business Jet to Charter Fleet

First Wing Charter, part of the Eagle Creek Aviation family of companies, has announced the expansion of its business jet fleet by adding a sixth business aircraft, a Cessna Citation Ultra. The business jet is located at Eagle Creek Airpark and began taking charter flights on July 1.

The turbofan-powered Citation Ultra accommodates up to 8 passengers. The aircraft features a fully-upgraded premium leather interior, including a refreshment center with a microwave and fully-enclosed aft lavatory. It allows a range of 1,650 nautical miles with four passengers and travels at a cruising speed of 490 mph.

Eagle Creek Aviation recently upgraded the aircraft’s avionics to include Garmin GTN 750 and 650 with coupled WAAS LPV approaches and ADS-B out, which provide enhanced safety and allow the aircraft to utilize additional local and regional airports in inclement weather conditions. Further upgrades include exterior painting and interior refurbishment.Aircraft Charter Indianapolis Jet Charter

“Adding the Citation Ultra jet to our business fleet enables us to meet the increasing demand for private charter flights in and out of Indianapolis and Naples,” said Matt Hagans, Eagle Creek Aviation CEO. “In today’s economic environment, more and more businesses are realizing the value in private air travel. Over the past 18 months we have noted steady increases in demand from both existing customers and new client interest.”

First Wing Charter operates out of Indianapolis and Naples, Fla. The charter fleet includes two Cessna Citation Excel aircraft and Cessna Citation Bravo (based in Indianapolis), and an Embraer Phenom 100 and a Twin Commander 900 (both based in Naples).

The newly-added Citation Ultra will easily accommodate travel to destinations across the U.S.  Approximate flight times are as follows:

·         Indianapolis to Chicago = 45 minutes

·         Indianapolis to Naples = 2 hours, 30 minutes

·         Indianapolis to New York City = 1 hour, 45 minutes

·         Indianapolis to Denver = 2 hours, 45 minutes
