Alerion Aviation launched at NBAA S&D Tampa conference

A new brand of private jet charter and management, Alerion Aviation was launched today at the NBAA Schedulers and Dispatchers conference in the Tampa Convention Center in Tampa, FL. The creation of Alerion Aviation is the result of the merger between JFI Jets and ACP Jets.

“Alerion Aviation combines the finest aspects of JFI Jets and ACP Jets, two firms that already had an extraordinary growth trajectory, unparalleled customer service and the highest safety ratings in the industry.”

Bob Seidel, chief executive officer of Alerion Aviation said: “Alerion Aviation combines the finest aspects of JFI Jets and ACP Jets, two firms that already had an extraordinary growth trajectory, unparalleled customer service and the highest safety ratings in the industry. Indeed, the sum of the best practices at both companies is now greater than the individual parts.”

Alerion carries safety ratings of ARGUS and Wyvern as well as IS-BAO Stage 2 certification.

“Your Personal Sky” is the new company’s tagline, represents Alerion Aviation’s commitment to building a company focused on quality and individualised customer service.  An “alerion” is a rare and mythological soaring bird, known as the Lord of the Sky that reaches new heights.

“Our new logo reflects the soaring alerion mythological imagery with a modernistic sensibility, while incorporating elements of JFI and ACP Jets’ identity,” Seidel explains. “ It connotes a balance of modernity, luxury, and efficiency. We’re pleased that our employees helped by suggesting nearly 100 names. Not only did we receive a number of great ideas, the naming was also a great team-building exercise to merge our corporate cultures.”

Alerion offers aircraft management, private jet charter, hangar facilities, and maintenance services in all three of the US’s busiest private jet markets: the New York metropolitan area, Southern California and South Florida. The combined companies will operate and manage 17 midsize, super-mid and heavy jets, all available for charter.

“We believe in offering world class, comprehensive aircraft management for aircraft owners, and industry-leading worldwide charter services for those who demand the highest degree of safety, service and professionalism,” said Seidel. “With unremitting attention to detail, and the industry’s most extreme commitment to quality service, Alerion is a clear leader among private aviation companies.”
