Tailwind adds another Falcon 20 to Cherry Air Fleet
Tailwind adds another Falcon 20 to the Cherry Air fleet – welcome N207CA!
“It was a team effort and I’m proud of all our people who dedicated their enthusiasm and energy toward bringing home this new addition back to the Cherry Air base…” commented Michele Wilkinson, CEO, Tailwind Air Charter Logistics.
Tailwind performed a passenger charter from Monterey, CA to Addison, TX using a Citation Excel. The charter passengers included two gentleman and five dogs, two of which were chocolate labs pictured here. The passengers also had a significant amount of luggage and even some small furniture pieces that Tailwind’s staff were able to quickly offload. Ground transportation to their destination was also provided. The passengers all enjoyed a smooth ride at 41,000′ and made the flight in just over three hours. Tailwind was able to secure a one-way flight, thereby saving the customer a significant amount of money over a round-trip charter.
