Textron Aviation and Las Vegas-based private aviation charter operator, Thrive Aviation, announced the delivery of three preowned Cessna Citation Sovereign+ business jets. Thrive Aviation is a private aviation company operating across North America and has a newly opened corporate headquarters at Henderson Executive Airport and a private 21,000 square foot hangar at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport.
“The delivery of these Citation business jets is a significant milestone for Thrive, which can now support a greater range of customers and accommodate their every aviation need – a vision we share at Textron Aviation,” said Rob Scholl, senior vice president, Sales and Flight Operations, Textron Aviation. “We appreciate the work that Thrive does and it’s exciting to witness their continued growth as they deliver passenger solutions for various mission profiles.”
By the end of 2020 fourth quarter, Thrive Aviation will operate 11 Cessna Citation jets. The three Sovereign+ aircraft are currently going through extensive interior and exterior overhauls, including paint to match Thrive Aviation’s flagship livery design. These jets will join the company’s existing array of aircraft, including two Cessna Citation M2 entry-level jets, four Cessna Citation CJ3+ light-jets, and one Cessna Citation XLS+ midsize business jet.
