(Kalamazoo, MI) —June 16, 2016 Individuals and businesses interested in Kalamazoo private charter can now travel in style in the recently acquired, enhanced and modernized King Air B200, from Kalamazoo based charter company, RAI Jets, LLC. The acquisition of the 9-seater, King Air B200 (tail number N96CE) offers Kalamazoo a convenient, luxurious and versatile way to fly direct from Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport (AZO).

“Flying in a King Air is a great experience but with the modifications we’ve installed, passengers enjoy an exceptionally safer and faster performance,” said David Riley, Director of Operations at RAI. “It’s a beautiful aircraft to look at, but customers most appreciate the quicker arrival time, roomy cabin, and increased space for their luggage. It’s a whole other world from the commercial airlines!”

The aircraft sports a variety of upgrades that beautify as well as fortify the King Air for high performance.

• A BLR Aerospace winglet package that provides a vertical, attractive enhancement to the wings which helps accelerate climb by 400-500 feet per minute. The winglets also enhance the overall stability of the plane to improve the experience of slow flights.

• A Blackhawk XP61 engine upgrade, which is one of the most advanced offerings for a King Air 200 model. The engine conversion helps the aircraft reach speeds of more than 300 knots thanks to more torque and horsepower. It also improves one engine performance.

• An attractive Raisbeck Performance Package, equipping the King Air with dual aft body strakes (that reduce drag and noise while eliminating yaw-damper-inoperative altitude restrictions), Ram Air Recovery (creating more efficient airflow to the engine), high flotation gear doors (protecting wheel wells, tires and brakes from the elements), and roomy crown wing lockers behind the engine that are the perfect size for storing golf clubs and duffel bags.

The new King Air B200 is now ready for take-off with big expectations from RAI. “Because of its nine-seat capacity and ample storage, we expect the King Air will be taking groups of people to getaway weekends, or business teams to conventions, client meetings and golf outings,” said Riley. He believes private transportation is becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity to get more done in a shorter period of time. “Charter flights have an unquestionable value to companies,” said Riley. “They are an investment in improved efficiency, the ability to increase one-on-one time with clients and raise employee morale by decreasing travel time and offering greater comfort during travel.”
