GOLD HILL, N.C. - July 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Hangar talk. That's where it all started. Ron Schreck (61) of Gold Hill, North Carolina took it just a bit further. Schreck lifted off from Gold Hill Airpark in his home built airplane and after 19 hours and 51 minutes he had touched down at all 109 public use airports in the state. "I suppose a few pilots have landed at all of those airports, but I know of no one who has done it in one day," said Schreck after completing the record breaking flight.

Schreck has been flying for over 40 years and has over 9500 hours in the air. After graduating from the US Air Force Academy in 1969 he served as a forward air controller (FAC) during the Vietnam War. During his 20-year Air Force tour of duty he flew the OV-10 "Bronco," the A-7 "Corsair II," the F-105 "Thunderchief," the F-4 "Phantom" and the F-16 "Falcon."

*(Photo Caption: Schreck with wife, Kathy after last landing.)

He retired from the Air Force with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in 1989 and signed on with Piedmont Airlines that same year. In his 14-year career with Piedmont, and later USAirways, Schreck flew the Fokker F-28, Boeing 727, 737, 757, 767 and the Airbus 320-series aircraft. Since retiring from the airline he has been employed by Orion Aviation, based at Siler City, NC. He flies in support of numerous government contracts, including whale survey missions to track the migratory habits of the endangered Northern Right Whale and "air attack" missions to combat wildfires for the US Forest Service.

In March of 2006 Schreck first took to the air in an airplane that he constructed from a kit. His RV-8 aircraft is no toy. The all-aluminum aircraft, powered by a 180 horsepower Lycoming engine, tops 220 MPH. It is capable of aerobatics and is equipped for instrument and night flight. He named the airplane "Miss Izzy" after his granddaughter, Isabelle, and has flown the tiny two-passenger airplane as far as the California coast. Schreck and his wife, Kathy recently completed a 4000-mile trip to Yellowstone Park along with ten other RV aircraft from the Southeast RV Squadron, a group of pilots who share the love of the poplar RV-series home built aircraft. Schreck also flies with several formation demonstration teams at air shows throughout the southeast.

In preparation for his record-breaking flight, Schreck consulted with Mr. William Cook, a professor of mathematics at Georgia Tech. Cook has spent years developing algorithms to solve the "Traveling Salesman Problem" which has consumed mathematicians for years. The problem is simple: a traveling salesman has dozens of cities to visit and must find the shortest route to take in order to minimize travel time and maximize his profit. Once the number of cities reach twelve, the number of possible routes is into the billions! "I'm no math genius," said Schreck, "so I just gave Cook the coordinates of the 109 airports that I needed to visit and he came back with the optimum route." The resulting routing covered 2291 miles and Schreck refueled four times during the flight.

"I had to fly the route during the summer months when the days are longest because many of the public airports in North Carolina are not lighted," said Schreck. He departed Gold Hill Airpark just before midnight on July 3rd so that his first landing at Concord Regional Airport occurred at 1201 AM on July 4th. Slowing to 80 MPH at each en route airport, Schreck touched his wheels down briefly then roared off to the next destination, stopping only for fuel. Touchdown at Siler City Airport, the last of the 109 public airports occurred at 7:52 PM and Schreck returned to his home at Gold Hill Airpark, a private airport, seventeen minutes later.

What's next for the ambitious aviator? Well, there are 49 more states!

Air Charter Professionals Form Organization to Promote Ethical Practices

Author: Air Charter Association of North America
Dateline: Mon, 25 Jun 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOSTON, Mass. - June 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A non-profit organization dedicated to recognizing and promoting the highest standards of ethics, integrity and professionalism in the air charter industry has been formed by principals from several of the most well established and successful air charter companies in North America. With combined revenues in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually, the Air Charter Association of North America (ACANA) represents a significant presence in the aviation marketplace.”

BOSTON, Mass. - June 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A non-profit organization dedicated to recognizing and promoting the highest standards of ethics, integrity and professionalism in the air charter industry has been formed by principals from several of the most well established and successful air charter companies in North America. With combined revenues in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually, the Air Charter Association of North America (ACANA) represents a significant presence in the aviation marketplace.

(c) Send2PressThe purpose of the organization is to recognize and set standards of financial stability, longevity, industry presence, ethical business practices and compliance with DOT and FAA regulations. By virtue of these standards and a company's membership in ACANA, clients and prospective clients will have a benchmark with which to judge the air charter provider that they choose to use.

"We realize that there are companies in our industry that operate with an apparent absence of ethical business practices and standards. It is our hope that the creation of ACANA will be taking the lead to promote awareness of the high level of ethics and standards that the majority in our industry operate by," said Scott Bickford, Chairman of ACANA and CEO of Air Planning.

ACANA will engage with the Department 0f Transportation to ensure that current industry regulations will be enforced and will encourage the government to take action against violators, rather than create a more burdensome regulatory environment for those who maintain a high ethical standard.

"As an organization, we strongly believe that the number of companies in our industry that add value for the client and create revenue for the operators vastly outnumbers the few that choose to operate in a manner that undermines the public's perception of our work," said Jonathan Tasler, President of ACANA and President of Air Charter Team.

The founding member companies are Air Charter Team, Air Planning, Chapman Freeborn, Le Bas, Performance Aviation and Sportsflight, with an average of ten years in business. To become a member in the organization the applicant company must be sponsored by an existing member, provide certified financial information and meet a stringent list of operating criteria including but not limited to the number of years in business, permanent office space and a commitment to only working with Part 135 and Part 121 operators.

Betsy Nocton of American Trans Air and Laura Douglas of US Airways have accepted an invitation from ACANA to serve as Advisory Board Members to the organization.

Jet Repair Anywhere Inc. Announces On-Site ‘Maintenance Facility’ Audit Service as Next Level of Safety and Compliance Assurance

Author: Jet Repair Anywhere Inc.
Dateline: Mon, 15 Jan 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Jan. 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As promised at the NBAA 2006 Orlando Florida convention, Jet Repair Anywhere has commenced the scheduling of On-site Audits for FAA Repair Stations and maintenance facilities. Subscribers to Jet Repair Anywhere can view both the paper audit and the On-site Audit documents via Jet Repair Anywhere's web site.”

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Jan. 15 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As promised at the NBAA 2006 Orlando Florida convention, Jet Repair Anywhere has commenced the scheduling of On-site Audits for FAA Repair Stations and maintenance facilities. Subscribers to Jet Repair Anywhere can view both the paper audit and the On-site Audit documents via Jet Repair Anywhere's web site.

(c) Send2PressCurrently Jet Repair Anywhere aircraft owner and operator subscribers are not charged for this service and Jet Repair Anywhere will be offering subscriptions to attendees of this year's 18th Annual NBAA Schedulers and Dispatcher Conference in Phoenix, AZ.

Jet Repair Anywhere currently performs "Paper Audits" on its maintenance facility members. Paper Audits verify its member's claims concerning, maintenance authorizations and Drug Program compliance before posting this data for its subscribers.

"Most of the time an aircraft operator needing away from home maintenance is in the dark when searching for a legitimate facility," said JRA President, Robert Salvo, "most maintenance facilities do not fall under direct FAA surveillance," adding "If an aircraft operator insists on using a Jet Repair Anywhere member, he is assured a certain level of compliance."

The requests for a face-to-face "On-site Audit" came from the maintenance industry itself. The leading maintenance facilities have been battling to educate the public about the risks of gypsy mechanics and shoe-string operations.

Quoting Chris Cullen, Director of Aircraft Maintenance Services for Swift Aviation, "We spend an incredible amount of money each year to purchase testing and support equipment so that we can provide state of the art service to our clients, yet we constantly get requests from our competitors to borrow our equipment because they have made claims about their ability to perform maintenance on aircraft that they are not even tooled up to support."

Swift Aviation in Phoenix, Arizona and Western Jet in Van Nuys, California have both requested to be on the top of the list for On-site audits scheduled for February of this year.

About Jet Repair Anywhere
Based in Scottsdale, AZ., Jet Repair Anywhere is a provider of a comprehensive Internet based maintenance directory and a maintenance auditing company. Jet Repair Anywhere offers 24/7 service to their aircraft owner/operator clients.

Earthjet Introduces Their New Air Taxi Jet

Author: Earthjet Incorporated
Dateline: Fri, 13 Oct 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Oct. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Microjets or VLJ's may be suitable for private pilot use, but a ubiquitous air taxi operation requires a different aircraft. Earthjet is guiding the development of a purpose-designed jet which will deliver safe, comfortable, reliable and affordable air taxi service.”



A R T I C L E:

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Oct. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Microjets or VLJ's may be suitable for private pilot use, but a ubiquitous air taxi operation requires a different aircraft. Earthjet is guiding the development of a purpose-designed jet which will deliver safe, comfortable, reliable and affordable air taxi service.

Earthjet developed a market specification from extensive research, pilot interviews and customer survey data. The market specification informed an aircraft specification which has been the basis for the aircraft design. The purpose-designed air taxi jet will be certified and produced by world-class aerospace manufacturing companies, in collaboration with Earthjet. We have mitigated the risk associated with relying on a start-up aircraft manufacturer trying to enter a new aircraft into service, by working with established aerospace companies that have direct experience in passenger aircraft.

The inherent limitations of microjet/VLJ equipment has forced air taxi operator hopefuls into confined service areas, a cramped cabin, and expensive pricing even on a per-seat basis due to limited payload-range. This leaves a large market opportunity for the right aircraft which can deliver business jet service at dramatically lower prices.

The aircraft payload-range, durability, reliability, operating economics and cabin comfort far exceeds what any microjet/VLJ is advertised to deliver. Compared to the microjets, Cost per Available Seat Mile for this aircraft is approximately half, so Earthjet can offer airline type pricing which opens up the market to millions more passengers.

Our customers will enjoy stand-up cabin service in a real business jet. Earthjet service includes trips up to 1,000 miles even with all seats occupied and generous baggage capacity. The seat price is around half of the prices being quoted by microjet-based air taxi service providers. The payload-range capability of the aircraft enables Earthjet to service 70% of all U.S. domestic airline markets, and can effectively service thousands of origin-destination market pairs that have less than 25 passengers per day.

According to Joe Grimes, Earthjet COO: "One advantage to involving professional pilots in almost every aspect of the business from the beginning was our ability to verify our assumptions. It was surprising how strongly professional pilots felt regarding the new aircraft. They concurred with our recognition that meeting the aircraft performance, comfort, durability, and economic requirements was essential for profitable operations. Without the right aircraft, the business doesn't make sense - and the microjets cannot meet the requirements for this business."

The Earthjet aircraft pricing model has been corroborated with sub-tiered aircraft system suppliers. Suppliers embrace the idea that a smaller and lighter aircraft is not necessarily lower price - higher volume production enables economies of scale, supply chain efficiency and lower cost. Some aircraft system suppliers have indicated pricing levels at 1/10th the cost of the same system supplied at typical business jet production volumes. The air taxi plane can be larger and more capable, yet cost no more than the microjet/VLJ pricing levels advertised today.

About Earthjet

Earthjet Incorporated was established to bring airline affordability to business jet travel, and open up private jet travel to millions more passengers.

Dateline: Fri, 13 Oct 2006

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Oct. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- For the most part, pilots have been relegated to employee status working for the airlines, air charter and fractional ownership companies. Earthjet views the pilot as a fundamental key to the success of any air service business, and is offering the pilot the opportunity to own the business as well as fly the plane.

Send2PressEarthjet has developed a franchise business whereby pilots can own and operate a purpose-built air taxi jet and provide passenger service as part of a network instead of trying to go at the business alone. The network provides the scale and efficiency which is essential for a reliable and profitable air taxi business.

Features and benefits of the Earthjet system include: access to a purpose-designed air taxi jet manufactured by established OEMs; uniform safety systems and culture; extensive training, including business training; centralized reservation systems; computerized back-office systems; approved suppliers at preferential pricing for almost all aspects of the business; complete financing packages for those who qualify; and on-going support.

David Bjellos, former major airline captain, now manager of a prestigious South Florida Corporate Flight Department and frequent contributor to Professional Pilot magazine states: "Earthjet has covered all the bases so that pilots can finally own a jet which is a revenue machine - it is designed for the rigors of high-cycle passenger service. They have come up with a dynamic approach to creating a service network, with the systems and processes required to maintain a safe, uniform, and highly reliable passenger service. For pilots who have dreamed of owning a jet and working for themselves, Earthjet provides a terrific opportunity."

Earthjet has involved professional pilots throughout the planning stages of the business. The reception and enthusiasm for the novel business model, aircraft design, proposed systems and processes, reservation logic, and commitment to safety and ongoing franchise support has been extremely positive. The reaction to the purpose-designed air taxi jet has been fantastic - the pilots recognize this as a critical element for the success of the business. Beginning service with the wrong equipment versus guiding the development of the right aircraft has been a strong point of contention. In the end, practically everyone agrees that this business can only work with the right aircraft.

Earthjet will be formally offering franchise opportunities to qualified pilots early next year.
