Private Jet Expeditions Pilot Hat Badge
Atlanta, GA 1989-1995
Private Jet Expeditions was founded in 1989 and began operations with a former TWA B-727 aircraft to tourist destinations around the world operating under FAR Part 121. The airline was sold and the company was moved to Atlanta, GA. It was later owned by Apple Vacations and then by the Spanish consortium OASIS. When Oasis took over, the McDonald Douglas MD-83 was put into service and service was expanded, including scheduled flights. In 1993 it had a scheduled route from Chicago to Atlanta and on to Miami. Because of poor load factors the route was abandoned in 1994 and shortly thereafter Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection was sought. The charter operations did not go well and by March 1995 operations were permanently suspended.
