Executive Flight Services has announced its certification and capability to manage and fly FAR Part 135 aircraft with 10 seats or more, as well as the ability to operate flights to Europe, across the Pacific and throughout the world.

The approval follows a recent expansion of Executive Flight Services’ managed fleet, which now includes the technologically advanced Legacy 500 and two spacious Hawker 4000s. The company flies out of upgraded and expanded hangar facilities at Fort Worth Meacham International Airport among other locations.

“This process represents the fulfillment of our most-requested service,” Harry Mitchel, chief operating officer of Executive Flight Services and Executive AirShare, said in a news release. “Many departments came together with preparation, focus, execution and teamwork to ensure that customers have the greatest range of travel options and services.”

Executive Flight Services is a wholly owned subsidiary of Executive AirShare. It recently completed its certification process by the Federal Aviation Administration to operate jets with 10 seats or more over ocean routes. The “10 or More” certification allows longer flights on larger EFS-flown aircraft, such as a 2016 Embraer Legacy 500, for charter or managed-aircraft customers, the news release said.

To achieve the “10 or More” designation for Part 135, which covers charter and commercial operators, Executive Flight Services pilots received training in international flight courses. They worked in conjunction with both the FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency, its counterpart across the Atlantic. The certification also opens up routes for customers to popular Pacific locations, such as the Hawaiian Islands, the news release said.
