NEW ORLEANS, LA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 18, 2006 -- Phoenix Associates Land Syndicate (Phoenix) (PINKSHEETS: PBLS) today announced that Raymond J. Santa has joined Best Jets as Vice President - Marketing & Sales. In his new position, Ray Santa is charged with establishing an aggressive sales and marketing team to support the various products and services offered by Best Jets.

Ray Santa comes to Best Jets with twenty-four years of aviation experience in domestic and international markets. Prior to joining Best Jets, Ray held various marketing and sales positions with Jet Aviation, TAG Aviation, Bombardier Aerospace, Bell Helicopter, Flight Safety and SimuFlite International.

Ray is a graduate of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, where he earned a BS in Aeronautical Studies and an MBA in Aviation. He holds a commercial pilot license, has international travel experience and is able to converse in several languages.

Upon joining Best Jets, Ray's immediate focus will be to promote the new 21st Century line of re-manufactured Lear 25 and Falcon 20 jets globally.
