On Saturday, September 24, Magellan Jets hosted the Louis XIII Legacy Experience at The Sunset Plaza Mansion in Los Angeles, CA. This intimate private event allowed all guests to join in tasting Remy Martin’s Grand Champagne Cognac, Louis XIII, in the company of expert tastemakers. Remy Martin distinguishes Louis XIII not as a spirit, but rather as a moment to savor. Upon their arrival, the guests were invited to enjoy hors d’oeuvres and Charles Heidsick champagne. The main event was the sampling of Louis XIII; they delighted in sipping the exquisite cognac. The brand ambassador Sten Liija and Yves De Launay, the Vice President of Louis XIII greeted the attendees and were able to educate them on the spirit’s history and composition. This is a Cognac with an average age of 70 years in every bottle, which translates, for the recently released 1998 vintage, into grapes harvested in 1898 through 1952. You taste a piece of history with every sip of this exquisite Cognac. The Louis XIII Experience was a memorable evening for all. As a representative of Magellan Jets, Stephen Huntsman stated, “The event flow was smooth and the presentation was flawless and professional.”

Ever wondered what it would be like to fly private? Well we’re here to show you. Boston-based Magellan Jets was founded on the premise of taking the hassle out of luxury flying. From their full concierge department to the variety of aircrafts (I’m in love with the Hawker 4000), Magellan is carving a place inside the private jet industry by making flying private without the boys-club membership possible.
On December 18, 2010, Magellan Jets flew down to the Palm Beach International Speedway for the Rebel Rock Racing event, hosted by the music industry’s super producer Jim Jonsin. Hailing from Miami, this Grammy-winning, chart-topping, overall beat master has managed to impress us once again with the recent launch of his very own Rebel Rock race team. Partnered with Rebel Rock and Champion Motorsport, Jonsin was able to bring the excitment of racing to the public. This event showcased incredible automobiles and celebrity drivers. For Jim Jonsin, the main objective of creating the racing event was to inspire youth to reach for their dreams and pursue careers which may seem extraordinary.
Last week Rico Love launched his record label, Division 1. The singer/songwriter/producer chose to celebrate
Now I’m feelin’ so fly like a G6, like a G6, like a G6.
You might recognize these lyrics from the Billboard Top 100 song, “Like a G6”. The electro-house single by Far East Movement has been number 1 on iTunes and currently has more than 9 million views on YouTube.
Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. earlier this week celebrated the 25th anniversary of the GIV. The Gulfstream
Have you ever wondered what the difference was between the Gulfstream GV, G500, and the Gulfstream G550 private jets? When looking to charter a jet, it is important to know the exact ins and outs of the aircraft that you are planning to fly on. Obviously, we make it a point to supply the best aircraft possible when you charter jets through Magellan Jets, but it’s still good to know all the facts!

Want to be invincible in the sky? Nowadays anyone can track your whereabouts especially while operating in public airspace. The company FlightAware.com grants users accessibility to view a wide range of flights and their scheduled routings. When an aircraft is operating in controlled airspace their identification number must be clearly visible on the fuselage. This goes for private flights too! Pilots talking to air traffic control are broadcasting their whereabouts and intentions on public radio frequencies, making it even easier to listen in on the open skies.

Lebron James will be making a world-wide appearance on ESPN at 9 o’clock this evening. As the world waits to hear King James make a decision, fans will be anticipating his new arrival wherever he goes. Analysts and sports commentators have been suggesting that Lebron will go to Miami to join superpowers Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. However, the decision still remains an enigma, not knowing where he will ultimately go. New York, Miami, and Chicago are all big name cities in which Lebron may attend. We anticipate seeing clients from Magellan traveling to these various destinations to watch the King play. We know that his decision will have a long lasting affect wherever he goes, impacting the lives of others in the desired region. Tune in at 9 o’ clock to watch Lebron James make a decision, we know here at Magellan Jets, we will also be anticipating his historic free-agency signing.
A 19 year-old fugitive is wanted by the FBI in the Bahamas. Colton Harris-Moore is a teenage thief who has been taunting police for over two years now. Colton has been committing burglaries and possible theft of boats, airplanes, and luxury cars. Recently he has been spotted in the Bahamas and the US embassy has issued a $10,000 reward for any information leading to his arrest. The owner of a stolen plane was contacted by the Coast Guard that his plane has been sending emergency signals off the coast of the Bahamas. Colton was the prime suspect and he was nowhere to be found when the plane crashed. Sounds like Catch Me If You Can, a 2002 film starring Tom Hanks and Leonardo DiCaprio. If the owner of the plane used Magellan Jets, he wouldn’t have to worry about theft related issues.
Anybody catch the latest episode of the hit HBO series, Entourage, last night? If not, you missed a cameo appearance by Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) was in the talks with Mr. Jones to help represent the NFL and their TV rights. Jerry was seen boarding his Private Jet during the episode which sparked some excitement for fans. Jerry is no stranger to private aviation with a net worth way over a billion dollars. Check out his exclusive HBO appearance below:
John Travolta’s Private Jet Airport
John Travolta has been a fan of private aviation for some time. He currently owns a Gulfstream II and Boeing 707 that are both able to taxi right up to two buildings connected to his house. People may have seen Travolta flaunt his private jet on “MTV Cribs” a few years ago. What you may not have known is that his $2.5 million home features a jetway for him to have direct access to his private airliner without even going outside. The 6,400 square foot house is located in Ocala, Florida and is in the exclusive fly-in community of Jumbolair. Of course Magellan can provide any size aircraft, although customers are on their own to get them to the front door!

Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, weighed in on his social network, hating interviews, privacy, private jets, and an upcoming movie trailer. Recently Facebook just hit its 500 millionth user marking an impressive record. In an exclusive interview with ABC World News reporter Diane Sawyer, viewers got a chance to witness an inside looks into Zuckerberg’s personal life. During the interview Zuckerberg talked about Forbes’ claim that he was a billionaire, refuting it on the grounds that his company is still privately held. Speculation of Zuckerberg wanting to own a private jet remains popular. Zuckerberg makes it clear, however, that the rumors are false. What billionaire does not want to own a private jet? The smart ones. Unless you’re flying 400 hours a year or more on your very own jet, it is a waste of money! Being affluent has its perks, and flying private is definitely one of them. Magellan Jets allows individuals to get all the benefits of owning an aircraft and more, without a $50 Million asset to worry about!
Recently, President Obama’s dog, Bo, traveled to Maine on his own private jet. The Obama’s love their dog so much that they wanted to ensure his safety and comfort while traveling to Maine. Pet friendly hotels and vacation rentals have seen growing demand but transporting your pet to your desired destination has caused some trouble and aggravation. If you choose to fly commercial with your pet, the entire process can be extremely traumatic for them. Most commercial airline companies require your animal to stay inside a crate and be placed with the luggage if they exceed a 20lb weight limit. With a private jet charter, your little (or big!) friend can be by your side at all times with no hassle. Pets are able to travel onboard the aircraft while being relaxed, stable, and in complete luxury. Perhaps the biggest bonus to it all is that you know where your pet is at all times. Magellan has had many clients travel with their pets, so we’re pros at the in’s and out’s of the process. We’re always happy to help make the experience exceptional for you and your furry (or feathery or scaley) friend!
