Metropolitan Aviation is pleased to announce the addition of a newly refurbished Gulfstream V (N888XY) branded SEXYjet to its worldwide air carrier certificate. Metropolitan will start accepting international and domestic charter reservations effective November 1, 2015. The ultra-long-range jet, sporting a distinctive livery, brings innovative design and a fresh new concept to the private jet charter industry.

"SEXYjet is receiving an enthusiastic response from the charter community already," says Metropolitan Aviation owner and CEO Alan R. Cook. "We anticipate that charter consumers all over the globe will gravitate toward this innovative design and fresh approach to charter when they see this aircraft on the ramp. We are thrilled to be launching this trailblazing travel experience offering the finest service for private long-haul and international flights."

The largest private jet management and charter company headquartered in the mid-Atlantic today. Metropolitan Aviation is based at Manassas Airport just 20 minutes from Washington Dulles International Airport.

The Gulfstream V features a 1,669 cubic foot cabin and partitioned working and sleeping compartments with a lavatory and galley for full inflight food service. The multi-million-dollar interior and exterior refurbishment was recently completed at Duncan Aviation's Battle Creek, Michigan facility.

One of the most complex paint schemes it has ever completed, Duncan technicians spent more than 3,000 man hours taking the design from paper to production. The two-tone aesthetic of the project used two primary systems: Sherwin Williams satin black base with satin clear coat and Axalta Chromaulion's "color changing" base coat color called Perfect Jade. "This unique and stylish paint scheme will unquestionably make it one of the most eye-catching aircraft in the world," says George Bajo, a Duncan Aviation technical sales representative.

The owner of SEXYjet, US entrepreneur Mark Bonfigli called on his automotive marketing background to design the elaborate two-tone pearlized paint. Its luxurious and stylish interior has been designed to bring excitement and personality to an otherwise conservative corporate charter world. "We wanted to give SEXYjet its own super cool personality. This Gulfstream V will turn heads and make everyone smile when they see it," says Bonfigli. He, his wife Marisa and guests, will enjoy initial SEXYjet flights as they continue their travels around the world to compete in Professional Beach Tennis tournaments--a growing international sport recognized by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) with hopes of becoming an Olympic sport in 2024.

"There is no better way for 14 people to get from point A to point B enjoying a comfortable flight with the highest level of customer service while working collaboratively. The SEXY brand is all about a wholesome and healthy expression of style. It's our way of bringing back ambiance and romance to flying privately," Bonfigli adds.

The Bonfiglis, world-ranked beach tennis players, are the driving force behind SEXY Beach Tennis. Mark's company has been a major IBTF and ITF sponsor, and Marisa was the first player named to the SEXY Beach Tennis pro team, ranked as high as #28 in the world rankings. SEXY Beach Tennis has developed a world-class line of paddles, clothing and accessories for the sport.
