Biz Jet At DL Tech Ops?

Tue Jul 21, 2015 2:39 am

Landed North runways today into ATL, and saw a biz jet at the Eastern side of DL Tech Ops. I have never seen this before. BBJ, of course, but this was a Gulfstream styled Biz Jet. Is this a new line of business DL are going after? Maybe at Tech ops group coming back from a mission?

Happens often. It is either flying in a crew to pick up one of the contract aircraft or delivering parts.

It could also be a charter to ferry mechanics to fix an aircraft. Doesn't happen much, but it does happen.

Doesn't Delta own a few biz jets they charter out? I know I caught a G-IV of theirs at CVG last week. Although why it's been there since, I haven't a clue.

Yes, there is a Biz jet side. Those planes don't get work done at Tech Ops.

It's more than a few, too isn't it? I think their fleet size is more like a few dozen.
Now you're flying smart

The service is called Delta Private Jets. It was originally Comair Jet Express and is still based at CVG.

Correct. They don't own the planes, they are managed by DPJ for their clients, with a wide variety of jets operated on the 135 certificate.
