AIRCRAFT MANAGEMENT (FAR) Part 91 & Part 135
SunStar Jets in conjunction with our management partners offer customized aircraft management under (FAR) Part 91 and Part 135, tailored to our buyer client’s needs.
We are somewhat unique in the fact that the only clients we take on for aircraft management are those who have purchased aircraft through us; this allows us to be there from inception of the total process, and allows us the additional time to understand both the purchasing needs as well as our client’s operational needs.
Working on an exclusive basis with all our client’s allows us the time to give our personal touch, which means we are more in touch with our client’s needs, and strive to give each client peace of mind, which we have found to be a key factor in our success.
Whether you currently own a private jet or are looking to acquire one, leave the details to us.
With business becoming more and more global and terrorism on the increase, we believe a private jet needs to be private. All our aircraft are operated in a strictly confidential manner and the crews are trained to the highest standards.
Accident records show fatal crashes on private jets outnumber those on airlines because of safety lapses. Having operated in both the private jet and airline worlds at SunStar Jets in conjunction with our management partners we give pilots more simulator time than most airlines.
With the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) making it mandatory in 2019 per (FAR) Part 121 that airline pilots complete upset recovery training in a full flight simulator, SunStar Jets management partners have been proactive in already introducing upset recovery training not only in a full flight simulator but also in an actual aircraft taught by former NASA astronauts.

Professional flight crews are assigned to each managed aircraft. The majority of the pilot hiring is done by referral and our management partners prefer aviators with both airline and private jet backgrounds. A big emphasis is put on pilots’ personalities and pairing them with the
In addition to safety our Flight Attendants are also responsible for creating an exceptional, personalized service for our owners and guests. Armed with exquisite culinary skills, poise, and the sophistication that reflects a meticulous work ethic. With a big focus on confidentiality and discretion, our Flight Attendants have the sensitivity it takes to anticipate clients’ needs and the knowledge to satisfy them. All Emergency and First Aid training is done according to the highest level of International Airlines.
All pilots receive classroom and simulator training on the organization’s procedures and policies for each owner. Pilots must complete a simulator proficiency flight check and recurrent classroom training every six months and upset recovery training every two years. Flight Attendants complete recurrent cabin service training each year and all flight personnel receive specific training on how to handle emergency events and aviation security.
All pilot training programs are regularly reviewed and revised to ensure that policies address operational needs while providing the highest level of safety. All scheduled and unscheduled maintenance is performed in accordance with airworthiness regulations. Crew members and maintenance personnel participate in an approved pre-employment screening process, and random drug and alcohol testing program.
All flight operations are managed from an Operations Control Center (OCC). A flight itinerary (airports of departure and arrival, ground handling, estimated flight times, catering, ground transportation, hotels), etc, is sent to the client prior to each flight, which is subsequently tracked from take-off to landing.
All aircraft billings are billed at cost (no mark up), and checked to ensure correct current charges, and to identify each specific flight-related expense. Invoices include a complete breakdown showing each vendor and amount paid, along with a full listing of individual charges by category. At the end of every month (or pre-agreed billing period), your Aircraft Manager will provide you with accurate aircraft management reports, consisting of:
- An aircraft management report that provides a complete breakdown of the costs (pre-agreed and otherwise) incurred listing of each individual charge by category & sub-category.
- Monthly aircraft activity reports
- An advisory note on maintenance works required (off and on schedule)
