New charter company Planet Nine Private Air launches with Falcon 7X

A new ultra-long-haul charter company is to begin operations with its first Dassault Falcon 7X, having achieved an FAA Part 135 operating certificate in June 2018. USA-based Planet Nine Private Air expects to operate four 7Xs by the end of the year – deliveries are scheduled for August, September and December 2018.

The Falcon 7X is configured for 11-16 passengers, offering six beds for night flights, and offers a range of 5,950 nautical miles. Planet Nine’s Falcon 7Xs will all have refurbished interiors and feature wi-fi and IFE from Gogo/SwiftBroadband. This wi-fi will be complimentary on domestic charters in the USA. The aircraft have all undergone C Checks with accredited MROs, overseen by Joe Ponce, the company’s director of maintenance.

“We congratulate Planet Nine on securing its operating license,” said Jean Rosanvallon, CEO of Dassault FalconJet. “We have been supporting their team closely over the six months since the company’s formation and are thrilled that their mainstay aircraft choice is the Falcon 7X. The aircraft will deliver an extremely comfortable ride for Planet Nine’s passengers with its quiet 50dBA cabin.”

“Our operation will center on a floating fleet model, and the efficiency it brings to our operations we can then pass on to our customers and friends in the form of better pricing,” said James Seagrim, director of operations at Planet Nine.
