Corporate Eagle, a provider of premium, membership-based fractional and managed business aviation programs, based at Oakland County International airport, has announced a new large cabin aircraft for its southeastern Michigan based fractional fleet. The company has taken delivery of the first of four identical Falcon 2000s that is available to its existing and new southeastern Michigan-based members.
The aircraft was unveiled at a private member’s reception on Thursday, Sept. 24, and is being unveiled to the public at the Oakland County International Airport’s Air Transportation Expo hosted in conjunction with the Michigan Business Aviation Association today.
“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,” said President and CEO Rick Nini. “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. The Falcon 2000, together with our existing Hawker 800XP and King Air B-200 fractional fleet, Corporate Eagle now offers unmatched, southeastern Michigan based mission-specific fleet capabilities.”
Produced by Dassault Aviation, the Falcon 2000 offers the best-in-class combination of speed, range, capacity, comfort and efficiency, with intercontinental capabilities. Configured for 10 passengers and the capacity for a cabin attendant, N991CE and the other identical Falcon 2000s to follow will feature top quality finishes and the latest in cabin technology. Featuring the same Skandia soundproofing package, GoGo Wi-Fi, Iridium World Wide Satellite phone system with personal PDA Text & Talk, the new Airshow 500 with dual 19” flush mounted LCD wide screen cabin monitors, a Rosen Blu-Ray DVD, CD entertainment system with aux entertainment provisions, an Alto cabin Speaker System with six loud speakers and two subwoofers, and LED cabin lighting.
The introduction of the Falcon 2000 fractional program is the latest strategic move in Corporate Eagle’s growth trajectory. Since 2010, the company has increased from 20 to nearly 40 southeastern Michigan based members, and hired 20 additional staff members for a total of 54 team members to meet growing demand. Corporate Eagle is the only fractional and managed business aviation company to be based completely in southeastern Michigan, with a staff comprised entirely of locally based employees.
