During the past year, aircraft management and charter company Desert Jet grew by 175 percent in revenue and charters flown. Since its founding in 2007, the company has grown over 1100 percent, despite having begun operations during a depressed economy and a flat charter market nationwide.
What’s the secret to the company’s success? Choosing the right fleet, emphasizing safety and customer service, and allowing only Certified Aviation Managers to manage client’s multi-million dollar assets – all offerings that directly meet the needs of their clients, according to Denise Wilson, founder and President of Desert Jet.
Wilson is one of several Certified Aviation Managers on staff that work on behalf of Desert Jet’s clients. The National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) grants this certification only to those professionals who meet strict experience requirements in aviation management. Currently, there are fewer than 175 professionals that have received this certification. Certified Aviation Managers are acknowledged by the business aviation community as professionals who have reached a distinct level of industry knowledge.
“Last year our marketing resulted in extreme demand for our charter services. To fill the demand, we are offering aircraft owners guaranteed flight hours for certain aircraft,” Wilson said. “We are seeking to partner with like-minded, safety-oriented flight departments and aircraft owners who want to offset their fixed operating expenses with consistent and reliable charter revenue.”
In preparation for its planned expansion, Desert Jet is bringing on two more Certified Aviation Managers and hiring additional staff, to include pilots, office support and maintenance personnel. Desert Jet is also planning the construction of a new hangar and office facility to house the expected additions to its fleet and staff.
