Is it possible for FlightAware to change the descriptor for LXJ flights?
The current descriptor is ***Bombardier Aerospace/Business Jet “Flexjet”***. On December 5th, 2013, Bombardier sold its Flexjet operation to Directional Aviation Capital and the company will now be known as FlexJet, LLC. I would suggest the descriptor be changed to simply ***Flexjet LLC “FlexJet”***.
The term “/Business Jet” in the current descriptor is particularly confusing for some, as Flexjet’s flights under FAR Part 135 are operated by partner BJS - Business Jet Solutions "Solution." Same aircraft and crews, just a distinct separation of operational control as required by the FAA. This relationship will continue under the new ownership.
