SANTA ANA, Calif. – Apr. 7, 2014 – STA Jets, a leader in executive charter, aircraft management, and aircraft sales and acquisition services based at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana, Calif., has announced the opening of an additional base of operations in Miami at Opa-locka Executive Airport (KOPF).
Following the recent opening of a new principal base at Palms Springs International Airport, the Miami-area base represents a significant extension of STA Jets footprint.
“We are very excited to offer the STA Jets charter experience to the East Coast starting with our new Miami location,” said STA Jets CEO Kurt Belcher. “This expansion will give our clients easy access not only to the eastern United States, but to the gateway to Caribbean and South American destinations as well.”
Two new aircraft to the STA Jets Fleet are currently based at Opa-locka: a Citation CJ3 (N651TW) that seats seven and offers amenities including a mini-galley, aft lavatory, XM Radio and Airshow entertainment system; and a Challenger 601 (N601EC) seating 10 and featuring new paint and interior with an aft lavatory, forward galley, Airshow entertainment system, DVD player and dual 28” monitors.
Opa-locka Executive Airport is 10 minutes from Sun Life Stadium (home of the Miami Dolphins and the Florida Marlins), 35 minutes from downtown Miami, 30 minutes from Miami Beach and 20 minutes from Miami International Airport. The airport offers full FBO service and U.S. Customs Service on the airfield. The airport is also home to the busiest U.S. Coast Guard Air/Sea Rescue Station.
