Last week, Vice President, Embraer 175 Program, Captain Jim Winkley and other Envoy leaders traveled to Brazil to collect a very special plane: N234JW.
“For his leadership and commitment to ensuring a smooth introduction of the E175 to Envoy’s fleet, I’m pleased to present Aircraft N234JW to Jim Winkley,” said Envoy President and CEO Pedro Fábregas. “This program is a major milestone for Envoy and I appreciate all of your contributions.”
“Overseeing the introduction of the Embraer 175 to Envoy’s operating certificate is one of the most rewarding projects during all my years at Envoy,” said Jim.
“Having my own tail number put on one of our aircraft is a tremendous honor, and one of the highlights of my career. My sincere thanks to Pedro and Senior Vice President, Air Operations Dee Temples for entrusting me with this effort, and to all of the Envoy employees that have worked so hard to make this program such a success.”
During the acceptance ceremony for N234JW and N235NN, Embraer presented Jim with a signed poster to congratulate our record-breaking E175 performance: a streak that has surpassed 7,000 controllable cancel-free flights.
