Executive leather seating is set out in a double club configuration, plus fold out-tables that deploy from the sidewalls, and there is a belted lavatory seat for a 9th passenger for takeoff and landing. The Learjet 45 offers the kind of head, shoulder, elbow and leg room more commonly associated with larger aircraft.

Being a Better Private Jet Business – Carbon Offset Project

B Corps meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability, and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.   The B Corp certification and assessment is an invaluable tool for us at Reynolds Jet. We use it as a regular health check-up to see how are we doing and monitor our progress of improvements in the five categories of; Governance, Workers, Customers, Community and Environment.   In the environmental category, Reynolds Jet has teamed up with CarbonFund.org. They are leading the fight against global warming, by making it easy and affordable for anyone – individual, business or organization – to reduce and offset their climate. Carbonfund.org supports three types of carbon offset projects, all of which are third-party certified to meet the same high standards to ensure quality environmental protection.   These projects are Energy Efficiency, Forestry or Renewable Energy.   In partnership with the Carbonfund.org, Reynolds Jet donates thousands of dollars to the Truck Stop Electrification Project, under the Energy Efficiency project to offset the emissions from private jet flights, not only from aircraft under Reynolds Jet management, but also the private jets for rent under the charter services and all aspects of our operations; from building efficiency to commuting to work. Investing in a project helping the transportation industry throughout the US, has the environmental benefits of mitigating climate change, reducing localized air and noise pollution, and reduces the fuel usage and the environmental harm caused by fossil fuel extraction.   Project Description: The Truck Stop Electrification Projects reduce tailpipe emissions from freight trucks...

Reynolds Jet Advances its Operational Excellence With IS-BAO Stage 3 Certification

Cincinnati, September 6, 2017 — Reynolds Jet – a leading provider of aircraft management and on demand charter services, based in Cincinnati, Ohio – is proud to announce it has earned the International Standard – Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) Stage 3 safety certification.   IS-BAO is a global standardized code of best practices developed by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC). It is designed to help business aviation companies establish quality flight operations and reach the highest level of safety and professionalism.   Achievement of Stage 3 registration was demonstrated through a rigorous independent audit and evaluation that validates Reynolds Jet’s commitment to developing and continuing an effective Safety Management System (SMS). The audit affirms that the SMS is supported by continuous improvement processes that foster a sustainable and proactive safety culture throughout the company; ensuring safety management activities are fully integrated into the operator’s business.   In addition to the IS-BAO Stage 3 Registration, Reynolds has maintained its ARGUS International Platinum Safety Rating – holding ARGUS’s top rating since 2009. This is the aviation industry’s most respected, recognized and requested designation for safety and operational excellence around the world.   Fewer than 1% of all charter operations in the U.S. have earned the very highest safety accreditations that Reynolds Jet has attained. Furthermore, this achievement has been accomplished with a relatively lean, dedicated flight department, built on the philosophy of better, not bigger.   “The Reynolds Jet team constantly pursues excellence, and our dedication to the customer shows in everything we do. Our relentless obsession for operational excellence and world class customer service dates back to day one”...

The Great American Total Solar Eclipse – Chase This Phenomenon in a Private Jet

Next week an incredible natural phenomenon will captivate people across the nation. A total solar eclipse. Dubbed as the Great American Total Solar Eclipse, on August 21, 2017, the skies will darken, and most intensely along the ‘path of totality’ – a 70 mile (113 kilometers) wide stretch of land – all the way from Oregon (beginning at 9:04 a.m. PDT) crossing the country to South Carolina before moving out into the Atlantic Ocean (4:06 p.m. EDT). The eclipse will end off the coast of Africa.   During a total solar eclipse, the sun’s outer atmosphere known as the corona, becomes visible to the naked eye. Skywatchers can expect to see jets and ribbons of light, twisting and curling out into the sky.   So why not witness this most awe-inspiring sight for yourself by taking to the skies for unequaled views from 45,000ft. Nowhere on earth will the view be as perfect as onboard a jet charter soaring above any viewing-restricting cloud cover, with front row seats for this magnificent sight. A private jet flight along this 70-mile strip also extends the duration of totality. By flying one of Reynolds Jet’s luxurious private jets in parallel to this once in a lifetime coast-to-coast celestial marvel, our aircraft offer up close and personal opportunities with an out-of-this-world-viewing experience. Observe first hand, what happens in the Earth’s upper atmosphere when the light of the sun dramatically fades away, as the last rays disappear behind the dark lunar shadow.   Alternatively, why not hire a plane to descend on one of the best destinations to view the eagerly anticipated long-lasting “diamond ring” effect...
