Kalamazoo-based private jet charter company, RAI Jets LLC (flyrai.com) is now leasing space at their new hangar, located at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport (AZO).

(Kalamazoo, MI) —October 10, 2016—RAI Jets, LLC, is now leasing space in their newly acquired hangar at the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport (KAZO). Last month, the private jet charter company held the grand opening of the facility, which gave them a home at the airport that they had been serving with jet charter service for more than 10 years.

“When we moved into the KAZO hangar, we knew there was an increasing need for aircraft storage space, especially in small Michigan cities such as Grand Rapids, Lansing and Flint,” says RAI Jets Director of Operations, David Riley. “Here at our new hangar in KAZO, we are conveniently located from these cities and also offer the additional aircraft management and maintenance services that every private aircraft owner needs.”
The new leasing space, located at 5825 Willoughby Dr. in Portage, MI and has a number of attractive features for aircraft owners:

• Freshly painted, updated hangar facility
• More than 20,000 square feet of available space for rent
• Oversized doors (70’ x 20’) to accommodate mid-sized and super mid-sized jets
• 7,000 square feet of available office space
• A spacious, comfortable waiting area
• Occupancy classification S-1, which includes aircraft repair and maintenance

Aircraft owners who lease space through RAI Jets LLC can also lease out their aircraft when not in use. “Because we are a Part 135 charter operation, owners who store their aircraft with us can take advantage of the opportunity to lease out their aircraft through our charter customers when they are not using the aircraft,” said Riley. “This is a strategic move for businesses and individuals who want to have an aircraft ready at a moment’s notice, but also want to offset their storage and maintenance costs. This helps make private aircraft ownership more cost effective and in some cases, even profitable.”

RAI is now offering tours of the leasing space to interested parties by appointment. To find out the status of available space or to make a tour appointment, call 1.800.247.2834 and ask for Christina or Dave.
