Thrive Aviation Grows Fleet

The Nevada-based charter operator, which already has seven Citations, is adding three Sovereign+ twinjets.

Charter operator Thrive Aviation will take delivery by the end of the year of three preowned Cessna Citation Sovereign+ jets from Textron Aviation. These midsize twinjets will join a fleet of Citations that already includes two M2s, four CJ3+s, and one XLS+.

It's not the latest model or the fastest, but it's still a winner on several important counts.

“Since the global COVID-19 pandemic began, more people have been looking to private aviation as a means of traveling while limiting the spread of the virus,” said Thrive CEO Curtis Edenfield. “The delivery of these new aircraft will help us support increased demand and provide our clients with the well-being and peace of mind they seek for their families and businesses.”

Thrive Aviation is based at Henderson (Nevada) Executive Airport and has a 21,000-square-foot hangar at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.
