Found and CEO, Jet Access Aviation
What started off as a vision and concepts written on a napkin, turned into the driving force that included over a decade of business experience, business acumen acquired, and the perspective of the private jet industry’s pulse from the front lines, not from behind a desk. There were blind spots in aircraft management, in charter sales, in this industry as a whole, and the vision was to be a truly effective, service-based, hard-working, and honest aviation company. Today, over fifteen years later, the fruits of those guiding principles have come long come to fruition in what is now known as Jet Access Aviation.
Jet Access Aviation now encompasses over forty managed aircraft and holds a reputation as having one of the most rapidly expanding fleets in the aviation industry. Jet Access Aviation is an Argus Platinum operator that wields a strict and spotless safety record, legacy partnerships with leading aviation affiliates, and is built on the foundation of a knowledgeable and diligent work force that will go above and beyond to leave all that we serve feeling satisfied. The excellence of our work ensures that each customer receives more of what’s needed before they need it. More accessibility. Less interference. A reduction of risk and expansion of comfort. We ensure all elements of excellence.
With the recent partnership with Aero Management Group, Jet Access Aviation has expanded into the lucrative Fixed Base Operator space to deliver increased value and provide top-down, white glove service to all aircraft owners, charter customers and tenants. FBO expansion projects are currently underway in Indianapolis, Dallas and Nashville. These locations will provide all services from fuel, concierge assistance, hangar and office space, and everything in between for all of our valued clients.
