Friendly Flying – Latitude 33 Aviation Receives Los Angeles Award for Fourth Consecutive Year
Friendly Flyer Awards 2018

July 11, 2018 – Los Angeles County is home to many domestic and international airports. Los Angeles International (LAX), Ontario International, John Wayne, Long Beach, Hollywood Burbank, and Van Nuys are the most commonly used airports in the county.

Latitude 33 Aviation manages aircraft based in cities throughout the U.S. and frequently performs flights into and out of Van Nuys airport. The private jet charter, executive jet management, and aircraft sales and acquisitions company headquartered at McClellan-Palomar Airport in Southern California, received the Friendly Flyer Award for achieving outstanding compliance with the Van Nuys Airport’s Fly Friendly Program for the fourth consecutive year.

Addressing the community’s concerns regarding jet aircraft noise in neighborhood areas, the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) established the voluntary Fly Friendly/Quiet Departure Program (QDP) for jet aircraft. In 2012, the “Friendly Flyer” Award program was created to recognize jet operators and efforts being made to achieve the highest level of compliance with mandatory noise regulations and voluntary noise abatement programs at Van Nuys Airport.

Since then, LAWA has updated the target noise levels and expanded the list of aircraft types to address Van Nuys fleet variety and reduce target noise levels.

The Friendly Flyer Award is presented annually to operators who meet or exceed the following criteria:

  • At least 60 southbound jet departures
  • No violations of the following:
    • Noise Abatement and Curfew Regulation
    • Non-Additional Rule
    • Noisier Jet Phase-out
  • 99% or greater compliance with the No Early Turn and the Quiet Jet Departure Programs.

The City of Los Angeles and the 29th Congressional District recognized the four-time Friendly Flyer Award winner for its dedication and commitment to honor and preserve the needs of the community. Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners member Jeffery Daar stated, “We congratulate and thank each of our award recipients for their commitment to quiet flying practices, which reduces noise and enhances the quality of life in our neighboring communities.”

“…reduces noise and enhances the quality of life in our neighboring communities.”

The Friendly Flyer program is regularly updated to expand the number of involved aircraft. Flora Margheritis, Van Nuys Airport manager, states the airport works in close collaboration with jet aircraft owners, operators, pilots, and airport tenants to achieve meaningful improvements.

Latitude 33 Aviation currently manages 30 private business jets located at airports along the West Coast and throughout the country. By offering all-inclusive services under one roof, the company has made itself the trusted partner for all things private aviation. As part of the top five percent of U.S. private jet charter operators to achieve the prestigious ARGUS Platinum safety rating, Latitude 33 Aviation continues to lead the industry with community involvement and educational initiatives that continue to grow year over year.

New Citation CJ4 Business Jet - Latitude 33 Aviation Growth in 2017

While growth in 2017 was expected to exceed previous years, the combination of unparalleled customer service, additional factory new aircraft added to the fleet, and industry tailwinds helped 2017 become a record-breaking year.

Latitude 33 Aviation has always offered bespoke aircraft brokerage services, but last year marked the expansion of the aircraft sales and acquisition division with the addition of a full-time sales team. When aircraft owners are looking to move up in aircraft capacity and capability, they choose Latitude 33 Aviation to oversee the sale of their current aircraft and acquisition of their next jet because of the company’s specialized industry experience. Unlike many other aircraft brokers, Latitude 33 Aviation does not just buy and sell aircraft – it manages, operates, and maintains a large fleet of jets which provides the company with in-depth operating knowledge of each specific jet.

The company has also developed close relationships with major business jet manufacturers such as Cessna/Textron, Embraer, and Bombardier. As an operator who accepts and operates many factory-new aircraft on an annual basis, Latitude 33 Aviation is regularly recommended by manufacturers to prospective aircraft owners or current owners who are looking for professional aircraft management services.
