Business aviation is growing and flight operations are surging, creating demand for talent at all levels of the industry. In addition to pilots, business aviation needs technicians, controllers, dispatchers, mechanics, accountants, planners, project managers, marketers, sales executives, customer service professionals, human resource managers, business development associates, software developers, data scientists, and IT managers.

There’s also a growing ecosystem of schools and colleges with curricula explicitly designed for students who aspire to aviation careers. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Florida Institute of Technology, Vaughn College of Aeronautics and Technology, and the University of North Dakota’s John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences are top-of-mind examples of well-established learning institutions for aviation professionals, and there are many more.

Sleek aircraft and amazing helicopters are definitely significant parts of the business aviation experience. But there’s more to the industry than soaring above the clouds. Business aviation is an essential piece of the bigger economic picture. It would be difficult to imagine a global economy — or any large-scale economy — functioning effectively without the innumerable benefits that business aviation provides on a daily basis.

Business aviation's mission is to transport people safely, securely, reliably, and comfortably whenever and wherever they need to travel. Accomplishing this mission requires the combined talent, focus, collaboration, and outstanding efforts of thousands of motivated individuals and organizations.

We’re doing our part at JETNET by providing the critical information and up-to-date market intelligence necessary for making the best possible decisions about selling, acquiring, financing, and operating business aircraft.

We look forward to hearing from you.
