Corporate Eagle, a provider of membership-based aviation programs where customers own a share of an airplane located at Oakland County International Airport in Waterford Township, unveils a new Falcon 2000 aircraft and will add three more identical planes to the fleet.
“Corporate Eagle has established the expertise, the talent, and the resources necessary to launch and maintain a Falcon 2000 fractional program through operating our existing four managed Falcon 2000s,” says Rick Nini, president and CEO of Corporate Eagle. “There is increased demand and limited availability for this type of air support in our market area and now is the perfect time to expand our fractional fleet to offer even greater capabilities for our growing membership base.”
Nini says the 10-passenger Falcon 2000, produced by French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation, features a soundproofing package, Wi-Fi, a phone system, LCD wide screen cabin monitors, a DVD player, six loud speakers, and LED cabin lighting.
Corporate Eagle also offers the Hawker 800XP, an eight-seat aircraft that can take off from runways much shorter than typically required, and the King Air B-200, a nine-seat twin-engine airplane. The company now offers a total of 12 aircraft.
Since 2010, Corporate Eagle has doubled its membership from 20 to nearly 40 southeastern Michigan-based members. The business aviation program provider has also recently hired 20 additional staff members for a total of 54 employees.
