CSI Aviation Arranges Simulated Hijacking for U.S., Russia Exercise

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CSI Aviation Services, Inc. arranged an aircraft for a simulated hijacking earlier this month for an exercise between the United States and Russia.

“The U.S. government trusts CSI because of our experience and dependability. The government knows that each time it uses CSI for our services, we deliver the results they are looking for.”

The aircraft, a Challenger 604, was crossing the Bering Sea when the simulated hijacking occurred. As part of the exercise, the aircraft did not respond to communications, resulting in the Federal Aviation Administration and Transportation Security Agency notifying the U.S. military.

Once notified, fighter jets intercepted the plane. Russia also launched aircraft, and the two governments coordinated together to prevent a potential terrorist attack.

“This is just one example of how CSI continues to assist the federal government in chartering and leasing aircraft,” said Gretchen Collins, Vice President of Special Contracts and Business Development. “The U.S. government trusts CSI because of our experience and dependability. The government knows that each time it uses CSI for our services, we deliver the results they are looking for.”

Since 1990, CSI has played an integral part in the federal government air transportation system. Every year, a number of government agencies rely on CSI for their day-to-day flight requirements.

CSI’s government contracts include managed air charter transportation services, on-demand domestic and international charter flights, aircraft purchase as well as wet and dry leasing.
