One of the Lear 31s Elite Air manages has changed headquarters from St. Pete/Clearwater International Airport (PIE) to Nashville International Airport (BNA). The move was made to accommodate a new client that has entered into a fixed-flight hours agreement with Elite Air.
According to Elite Air CEO Gray Gibbs, the aircraft (tail number N996JS) will still be available for ample charter hours to satisfy demand, and Sales Director AJ Becker said the move will benefit his department.
“Having an aircraft in the mid-south will open a lot of doors for us,” Becker said. “We still have three light jets based in Florida, and this will allow us to respond to the numerous requests we receive for flights to and from Texas and other major Southern states.”
