Their FAA certificate was purchased as part of the airlines liquidation.

Seems the new owners decided to keep the name, personally I would have ditched in favor of something new and not tainted.

I agree - Maxjet just reminds me of a failed, bankrupt airline.... not something you want in this climate

Where is the world wide market for this kind of travel, based on what figures?
Seems quite a gamble.

I don't think the Maxjet name is necessarily bad. DL, NW, UA, CO, US have all been in bankruptcy, I think the public understands this is a tough business these last few years. Tag on Maxjest luxury configured planes, with all their marketing materials and plans, and you have a nice place to start. In fact, I think Pro teams will EAT this up!!! I actually think they'll fight over the limited number of markets. VIP aviation is growing, this should be no different. SF 49'ers spare no expense / Dallas Cowboys? I am waiting for the Cowboys star on the tail next season.

Bankruptcy, yes. Liquidation and shutdown? No.

Well, now that Champion is gone (or going) and other large charter companies such as ATA are gone- I know they were not "luxury" charter - you never really know what the niche industry is like. The best I could say is that I hope these guys did their homework and have identified a target market, but I think the odds are significantly against them. And I also question their choice of continuing the MAXjet name... its not like this is a name that had built a significant brand image or loyalty.



None shall pass!!!!

Does this mean that they will bring back the planes from the desert?
How many aircrafts will they operate, is it the same as before?

Very few people have even heard of Maxjet, so its name isn't that tainted. Now with such a nonexistant brand, there isn't a reason to keep the name either.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

They've already operated a charter for the Oklahoma State Women's basketball team during their Sweet 16 matchup down in New Orleans. Wonder if they've secured a lucrative NBA deal given Champion Air shutting down after the season?

No. NWA got the contract.

The last company email I got before it was shut off, was that only two A/C would be used. For sure N250MY, and as for the other I do not know. Does anyone know the fate of N251MY that was parked in JFK without an engine?

Thanks

Actually, I believe the market is larger than one might think. Privatair's newly acquired B767-300 has been quite busy and the company recently exercised its second option on a 787. What with the market for luxury, round-the-world charters, rock star tours and high-dollar, large company charters, it's something that could work if properly executed. Certainly more potential than all-business class scheduled flying, IMHO.



My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.
