This time of year reminds us that sun is downright good for you, especially if you have seasonal affective disorder (SAD), and Vitamin D deficiency. Grab some friends book a charter with RAI to enjoy some natural healing. See you in the skies!
In Memory of Archie Trammell, 1928-2018
On February 5, the world lost Archie Trammell, one of the most significant men in business aviation, at the age of 89. Many an RAI pilot was trained by him personally or in one of his classes at Radar Training International. He dedicated his life to the knowledge of radar to promote safe flying technologies and procedures. He will be missed.
Surf the Net…In the Skies
The fastest jet in our fleet now has Wi-Fi service to match! RAI has completed the installation of high-speed internet on our Citation X jet, Gogo ATG 4000. We’re pleased with how well the Wi-Fi is performing for customers who expect the best—and can stay connected in the air.
Wi-Fi on the Citation X is offers fully wireless mobile broadband service with the speed and reliability of home and office internet.
2017 Brings Record-Breaking Maintenance Sales
Our maintenance department is busier than ever these days, thanks to our newly added services and capabilities for super mid-size jets. RAI is now offering super mid-size aircraft thanks to the arrival of our Citation X last May. We saw a 50 percent increase in our maintenance business from 2016-17 and expect to see an even greater jump in 2018, as other super mid-size jet owners realize we are an alternative larger FBOs and OEMs.
Our service department is standing by to serve your aircraft, from turbo props to super mid-size jets. To learn more, contact us today.
NBAA Schedulers and Dispatchers Conference
The 2018 National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) Scheduler and Dispatcher’s Conference in Long Beach, California was a good one for the RAI gang! We enjoyed the networking and especially an information session on about flying to Cuba, a potential new destination for us!
Surprise Christina! Our Director of Sales was honored for being a 2017 NBAA conference scholarship winner in larger than life-size, living color! Christina says she had no idea and was so excited to return to the conference this year.
We are also proud of our 2018 winners in the NBAA S&D scholarship programs: Becky Bakeman for the CAM online test prep training program and Karen Bryant for the initial flight attendant training.
NBAA also always offers an initiative for charity. This year, RAI joined other attendees along the California shoreline for a Fit 4 Charity Walk/Run to raise money for charities that offer professional dress clothes to low-income women on their way to success. Karen (far left) and Becky Bakeman (second from left) high five the runners along the route after they completed the course themselves.
