A successful entrepreneur, Edgar Alacan served as a private jet coordinator for several years before cofounding Jets.com in 2008. Edgar Alacan serves as a board member of PietrosFight.org in addition to his role as managing director of Jets.com.
Based in New York City, Jets.com provides clients with on-demand access to safe and luxurious private jet accommodations. The firm offers access to a full fleet of private jets that range from mid-size and heavy jets to super and very light jets (VLJs).
Jets.com currently offers two VLJ aircraft, which are the smallest private jet class. The first, the Citation Mustang, seats up to five passengers in a cabin close to 10 feet in length. A performance inspired jet, the Mustang can reach up to 2.8 hours of range in addition to providing the efficiency characteristic of lighter jets.
The other VLJ aircraft offered by Jets.com is the Phenom 100. Similar to the Citation Mustang, the Phenom can reach up to 2.8 hours of range. However, it incorporates a BMW-designed interior with next-generation technology to provide comfort, style, and performance in a single package. Although the Phenom’s cabin is slightly longer than the Mustang’s it seats one less person, with a total capacity of four passengers.

The recipient of a bachelor’s degree in business management from Brooklyn College, Edgar Alacan has led Jets.com, a provider of private jet travel, since he cofounded the company in 2008. In his leadership position with Jets.com, Edgar Alacan pays close attention to the latest news and developments in the private and charter jet industry.
Though private jet travel offers numerous conveniences and benefits to businesses, organizations, and other travelers, flying internationally can still pose inconveniences, especially when local airports are not equipped to handle customs and other border control responsibilities. Now, though, private jet operators and travelers have another option for international arrivals along the Mid-Atlantic coast.
In May 2018, Georgetown Air Services, the fixed-base operator (FBO) that provides services at Delaware Coastal Airport in Sussex County, Delaware, stated the airport can now handle incoming international flights. The announcement comes on the heels of an agreement between the airport and the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol that allows for international arrivals at the airport as long as 72 hours advance notice is provided.
The international capability is the latest in a series of improvements at the airport. In recent years, Georgetown Air Services lengthened the airport’s runway and redesigned the approach lighting as part of a $40 million infrastructure project.
