Textron Aviation turbine owners and operators to benefit from Citation Jet Pilots membership and FuelAdvantage program
Textron Aviation Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE:TXT) company, today announced that the Citation Jet Pilots (CJP) association has agreed to extend a free trial membership, including participation in CJP’s FuelAdvantage program to all Textron Aviation turbine owners based in the U.S. The CJP FuelAdvantage program provides competitive Jet-A fuel pricing at exclusive partner fixed-base operations (FBO) at hundreds of airports around the world.
“Textron Aviation and CJP understand that fuel is one of the largest variable costs of owning an aircraft,” said Kriya Shortt, senior vice president, Sales and Marketing. “With the FuelAdvantage program, owners and operators benefit from selecting their fuel stops at one of the more than 100 FBOs participating in this program. FuelAdvantage FBOs strive to offer the most affordable fuel price – providing both savings in time and operating costs. We are pleased to offer this exclusive access to Textron Aviation customers.”
As a part of the agreement, a free six-month affiliate membership in CJP is available for all customers flying turbine-powered Textron Aviation products, including Citations, Hawkers, King Airs, Caravans and Cessna turbine twins. After the six-month trial membership, customers can choose to join CJP.
CJP is a member organization run by aircraft owners for their mutual benefit and the benefit of other owners. Its more than 300 members also include corporate Citation pilots, those considering the purchase of a Citation, and partner companies.
The annual $300 membership offers access to numerous cost-saving opportunities through partnerships with leading suppliers and eight major aviation insurance underwriters. Members also find value in the free exchange of information, opinion and experiences that occurs between other owners and operators within private online forums and member-only, face-to-face events.
