Based in Baltimore, Maryland, CP Management is a business jet operator that employs two pilots and a director of maintenance. It carries VIP passengers domestically within the USA, as well as to international destinations, mainly in Canada, the Caribbean and Mexico.
The organization’s Bombardier Challenger 605 flies between 200 and 250 hours a year, with the priority for aviation department manager Jamie Stember getting his passengers to their destinations safely, on time and in the most efficient way possible.
“We do not have a dispatcher on staff and we needed a source that could give us what we considered airline-type dispatching,” he said.
Stember searched for a service that could efficiently handle all pre- and post-flight services as well as effectively respond to the frequent challenges that weather and air traffic congestion present to aircraft operators.
In 2004, CP Management selected Honeywell GoDirect™ Flight Sentinel’s highest tier of service as an alternative to having its own flight dispatcher on staff.
“When we’re flying, somebody’s always looking out for us,” said Jamie Stember. “The team is constantly sending us datalink messages about weather and traffic patterns.
“When I call Honeywell, it’s almost like I’m calling my family. They’re a true extension of our flight department.
“The service certainly pays for itself. With Honeywell Flight Sentinel™, you’re getting dedicated professionals, 24/7. It’s a must for any flight department that does not have an in-house dispatcher.”
