CI Jets, a division of Camarillo-based Channel Islands Aviation, has expanded its charter jet business into the Santa Barbara market, reports Sarah Oberman Bartush, chief marketing officer with Channel Islands Aviation. 

CI Jets, which has a flawless safety record, will begin operating from the Santa Barbara Airport (SBA), and operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The CI Jets fleet includes two Cessna Citations: a CJ2 and CJ3. The CJ2 is the airplane in Santa Barbara.

Along with the jet charter business, CI Jets also offers aircraft maintenance services, mentor pilots for owner-flown aircraft and jet brokerage services. 

Family-owned Channel Islands Aviation was established in 1976 to fly private charter aircraft to the Channel Islands. Today, the company still flies to the Channel Islands and also provides fixed-base operator services, aircraft sales, aircraft maintenance and a flight school.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
