Evidence Of Spring Is Just Around The Corner
If, like many others, you're ready for North America's winter to be over, you just may get your wish. Evidence that spring is about to arrive came this week in the form of an announcement by Tradewind Aviation, a Teterboro, N.J. (TEB)-based charter operator, that it's gearing up for what it calls daily first-class "Premium Scheduled Service" from TEB to Martha's Vineyard. With operators already advertising easy getaways to nearby beaches, what more evidence of spring's arrival do you need?
Tradewind will use executive-configured Cessna Grand Caravans to provide the service, an addition to its Vineyard Shuttle, which it said "allows visitors and commuters to effectively share executive aircraft." "We are excited to be expanding our service to Martha's Vineyard," says Eric Zipkin, president of Tradewind Aviation. "Visitors no longer have to settle for the hassles of traditional airline travel or pay for an entire plane when they only need a seat or two." Tradewind Aviation operates a fleet of four jets and nine turboprop aircraft, including two Citation CJ3s, two Citation Bravos, five Cessna Grand Caravans, three Pilatus PC-12s and a Socata TBM 700.
