Sun Air Jets Van Nuys (KVNY) Certified as Green Aviation Business by (NATA)

Sun Air Jets is excited to announce that its Van Nuys location (KVNY) has also been certified as a Green Aviation
Business with Tier 1 status by the National Air Transportation Association (NATA). This is the second location to
achieve this exciting designation for Sun Air Jets. The company worked with the NATA to evaluate and meet the
standards for its Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses in 2021 for the Camarillo (KCMA) location.

The NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses is a new sustainability initiative, developed in 2021, created
to provide FBOs, airports, and other aviation businesses a self-certification process for pursuing flexible, cost-effective
options to lower their carbon footprint.

Developed by a working group under NATA’s Environment Committee, the NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation
Businesses is a free industry standard designed to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (including CO2), increase
use of more environmentally friendly energy sources, reduce waste, and encourage sustainability operation-wide.
“NATA is grateful to Sun Air Jets for their input in developing the standard and leadership as an early adopter. It is
inspiring to see our members’ enthusiasm for meeting the requirements of this sustainability standard and then raising
the bar even higher for greater improvement,” stated NATA President and CEO Timothy Obitts.

Director of Business Development for Sun Air Jets, Mary Brehm, said, “It was an honor to work closely with the NATA
Environment Committee on this project and other environmental initiatives. Sun Air Jets is very excited to have our Van Nuys location receive this distinctive certification as well.”

The addition of the new green building certified hangars and the facilities on Roscoe Boulevard at the Van Nuys
Airport greatly expands the size of Sun Air Jets’ footprint of available space and presence in the Los Angeles area. The
two adjoining hangars each have an attached private terminal and office and provide 71,0000 square feet of new
space over 4.4 acres. Designed to offer a superior level of luxury and sophistication, the new Van Nuys facilities offer
private offices, lounges, conference meeting rooms, gated guest parking.

To further reduce their carbon footprint, Sun Air Jets continues to regularly make beneficial adjustments. Additional
electric vehicle charging stations and FloWater refillable water stations have recently been installed at all of their
greater Los Angeles area locations.
