Business and Charter
JDA offers 135Pro™, a straightforward, cost effective way for the smallest flight department to realize the economic benefits of operating with a Part 135 certificate. 135 Pro is a simplified low-cost Part 135 certification process, web-based application, and support program that enables operators the means to bolster revenue as a charter operator.
Quite often operators seeking to obtain a 135 certificate become overwhelmed with the resource requirements or get frustrated with the time it takes them to complete the certificate process. In addition many business aircraft owners seeking ways to generate revenue during slack operating periods pay monthly management fees to place their aircraft on a Part 135 certificate. This arrangement seemingly creates a win-win situation that allows the aircraft owner to obtain revenue from the charter flights, the Part 135 charter operator to generate revenue without the cost of aircraft ownership and passengers to get greater availability of charter aircraft at reduced cost.
The FAA has concluded that this arrangement, when coupled with the provisions of a flight crew, is often nothing more than a "rent a certificate sham." In many cases the FAA determined that the certificate holders lacked Operational Control over the aircraft and the flights were operated illegally. The results have been record fines, certificate suspensions and revocations and even jail time for flying illegal Part 135 flights.
