The CJP 2021 Annual Convention was another smashing success.  If you missed the recent CJP 2021 Annual Convention Special Flight Levels newsletter written and compiled by Editor Rob Finfrock, be sure to click here:

With the CJP 2021 Annual Convention now in our rear-view mirror, we are already preparing for the CJP 2022 Annual Convention which will be October 26-29, 2022, in Austin, TX.  Be sure to block these dates in your calendar now!

CJP continues to serve our members by increasing the number of special events and offerings available to Citation owners.  We are excited about the next CJP Regional Event from March 29 to April 1 at the St. Regis in Park City, UT.  Be on the lookout for the Regional Event registration eBlast before Christmas; registration will fill up quickly so once you receive it, don’t delay.  Also, we are in negotiations for a May 2022 visit to Wine Country, California, and will let you know once the dates are finalized.

While the Signature Fuel Advantage program will be expiring on Dec 31, 2021, CJP is proud of the relationship that we have with Signature.  We wish that we could have continued this relationship but due to low volume, Signature has decided to not renew this program.

At the request of Everest Fuel, please see their info below.  To review Everest Fuel’s prices, to receive this credit, and for any questions, please contact Nick Murphy, Director of Sales, at


Everest Fuel LogoEverest Fuel is one of the largest contract fuel providers in the United States.  Our Mission is to offer exception value, service and an expansive FBO Network.  We are happy to offer a one-time $50 account credit to CJP Members that open an Everest Fuel account on their first uplift of 250 gallons or more.  We also want to extend this offer to CJP Members who are already Everest Fuel Members; simply email Nick Murphy at and we will credit your next qualifying uplift.

There are no fees to join or monthly dues.  Everest Members only use their account when we are their preferred option.  Today, our contract fuel rates are available at 1,200 FBOs and serve over 8,000 aircraft.

Our four pillars are the foundation of everything we do: safety, service, facilities, and commitment to long term relationships.  These ideas led us to developing the Everest Fuel S.A.F.E. (Safety Audit Facility Evaluation).  The Everest Fuel S.A.F.E. is performed on-site at the FBO and scores them on employee training, the condition of their facility, service, security, operations and most importantly, fuel quality control.  What makes our audit different than our competitors, is that we audit all of the FBOs on the field and not just our contracted locations.  FBOs who are S.A.F.E. Certified are high quality locations that our Members can count on.

We value the relationships with our network FBOs and our Members.  We also understand that our Members build relationships with the FBOs too.  We commit to three-year agreements with FBOs once they have passed the Everest Fuel S.A.F.E and agreed upon a fuel price.   When a new Member joins or an FBO is added to our Network, our goal is to grow that relationship.

Everest Fuel is excited to be a sponsor with CJP and the Members.  We look forward to providing CJP Members with value in our fuel prices and safety with our FBO Network.  Again, to review Everest Fuel’s prices, to receive this credit, and for any questions, please contact Nick Murphy at
