Priester Aviation Offers Its Aircraft Owners Expedited Parts Through JSSI Parts & Leasing

WHEELING, Ill., Nov. 16, 2021 – Priester Aviation has launched a parts-procurement program with JSSI Parts & Leasing for its managed fleet of jets.

JSSI Parts & Leasing, an affiliate of Jet Support Services, Inc. (JSSI), has more than 38,000 stock lines of inventory available to support owners and operators of virtually every make and model of business jet. Priester Aviation has selected JSSI Parts & Leasing’s Supply Chain Solutions program to provide their aircraft owners with a dedicated procurement team backed by a sophisticated procurement process, expansive inventory and global vendor network.

“Many of our managed aircraft already leverage JSSI, so this is a natural partnership,” says Dave Prescott, Priester Aviation VP of Maintenance. “Our customers will benefit from efficiencies in JSSI Parts & Leasing’s extensive parts procurement and logistics support, freeing our team to focus on delivering the personalized services customers have come to expect and appreciate.”

Priester Aviation, founded in 1945 by George Priester as a flight training school, has evolved into a multidisciplinary global aircraft management and on-demand charter company. Its leadership torch passed to a third generation this summer with Charlie Priester transitioning to Chairman Emeritus and his son, Andy, assuming the role of Chairman and CEO. This new management program with JSSI Parts & Leasing serves as an ongoing example of dynamic leadership focused on continuous customer-focused improvements.

“JSSI has enjoyed a long relationship with Priester Aviation and we look forward to working closely with its proven team to support parts orders, enhance maintenance planning and provide detailed cost projections for customers,” says JSSI Parts & Leasing Chief Commercial Officer Jim Sellers.

“We support 10,000 maintenance events every year and now Priester Aviation’s network of customers can leverage our expertise, buying power and industry relationships as we help expedite the sourcing of parts, drive cost savings, and reduce downtime.”
