Fractional Aircraft Ownership Fleet

Fairfax, VA - March 11, 2002 - Flight Explorer, the world's leading provider of Internet-based real-time flight tracking information, reporting and display products, today announced an agreement with Executive Jet, Inc., that will enable the aircraft operator to provide up-to-the-minute tracking of its vast fleet of aircraft and, as a result, provide customers with a higher level of service in the air and on the ground. Executive Jet is the largest operator of private business jets in the world.

Executive Jet personnel will use the Flight Explorer software platform at its operations center in Columbus, Ohio, as well as at its 11 remote locations across the country to anticipate with greater accuracy the effects of air traffic, weather and other factors on the arrivals and departures of their aircraft. “Flight Explorer gives us a unique and powerful flight-following solution,” said Ron Klenotic, director of dispatch of Executive Jet. “We believe that the greater efficiency we gain in tracking our fleet will result in a higher level of customer service. It is a very powerful tool.”

Walt Kross, CEO of Flight Explorer, said, “Flight Explorer is designed for companies like Executive Jet that need specific information, in real time, about aircraft that may be thousands of miles apart. Getting the big picture helps increase efficiency and reduce costs. That’s a huge benefit to the company. We’re excited to work with Executive Jet.”
