Overview

JETNET is a web-based research service, providing fast and accurate answers to questions asked by aviation and yacht industry professionals worldwide.

Mission

It is our mission to maintain and market the most complete and accurate databases of information on business and commercial aircraft available to the aviation industry, and luxury yachts to the yachting industry, and to project to our customers and contacts that our staff is the most professional, and our database is the most valuable, in these industries.

History

In 1988 JETNET LLC was founded by Vincent Esposito, Sr., an entrepreneur in Utica, NY who achieved great success in the industrial linen services business. It was in his first career that Mr. Esposito came to appreciate the benefits of business aircraft as employed by several of his peers. This sparked his interest in business aviation and led to the launch of JETNET. JETNET became the first aircraft research service to harness the power of the modern PC.

In July 1988, the company’s first 12 researchers began building the database that at the time contained 12,000 airframes. The custom interface was a simple DOS program delivered daily via satellite. This was revolutionary at the time and established JETNET’s reputation as the forerunner in technological advances.

JETNET has since grown to approximately 50 full-time research professionals, updating information on more than 100,000 airframes and more than 6,500 yachts. With nearly 240,000 aircraft photos, 700,000 FAA documents, 28 million FAA flight records, 2.1 million email alerts, and 86,000 SMS text message alerts…and growing.

The services are entirely web-based and driven by the highly sophisticated Evolution interface. Our innovations have included SMS text messaging, customizable database interface Views, Evolution mobile service, Values reported sold prices, customizable JETNET CRM records in Marketplace Manager, and more recently, FAA utilization data.

JETNET is today regarded as the comprehensive provider of intelligence to business/commercial aircraft and luxury yacht markets, and serves thousands of professionals throughout the world.
