Last week, Triumph Jets was given simple instructions from a client: Get from Point A to Point B as efficiently and safely as possible.
Our client was on business in a remote location — his office staff in tow — and their duties would not be completed until late in the evening. With weather conditions changing rapidly and important meetings scheduled back home early the next morning, he entrusted us to provide him and his team an aircraft that would swiftly and safely get the group back home. Understanding his needs, we provided this client with a modern-day light jet that accomplished the task at hand and allowed his staff a few hours of rest in their own beds before getting back to the office the next morning.
One of our primary goals at Triumph Jets is finding the jet that is right for you.
Through our direct carrier partners, we have the ability to source turboprop, light, mid-size and heavy jets. Distance, speed, cabin space and storage are the main differences between these options. Let’s dive into each category to get a better understanding of the similarities and differences.
