jetAVIVA, a top-ranked dealer/broker of jet and high-performance turboprop / propeller aircraft, posted its most active year in the company’s eleven year history. jetAVIVA bought, sold, or acquired over 90 aircraft in the past year, a significant increase from 2015. “To be able to continue to make our Client’s dreams come true as a trusted partner in the acquisition / disposition of their aircraft has been a huge honor for our entire team.” said Cyrus Sigari, jetAVIVA’s CEO. In the past 12 months, jetAVIVA was the #1 independent reseller in pre-owned sales for the following aircraft types: Embraer Phenom 100, Embraer Phenom 300, Citation Mustang, Citation M2, Citation CJ1+, Citation CJ3, and Citation CJ4 model aircraft.
Ranking In The Industry
jetAVIVA has been instrumental in the commercialization of Very Light Jets (VLJs) since the firm was founded in 2006, having helped thousands of people in over 40 different countries enter the world of jet ownership. jetAVIVA has held market leading sales positions in the category since the company’s inception and is currently ranked as a top three aircraft sales organization in volume across all model types as tracked by industry research firm JETNET.
New Company President
Adding to its recent company highlights, jetAVIVA also named Managing Partner, Tim White, as the firm’s President. “Having previously served as Sr. Vice President of Sales for the Americas at Cessna Aircraft and a senior sales executive at Bombardier Aerospace, there’s no denying that Tim has had the experience and subsequent success of running global sales teams, and this will benefit both jetAVIVA and our Clients,” said Sigari. Moving forward, White will lead the firm’s day-to-day operations from the company’s Kansas City offices. White commented, “Seeing the jetAVIVA team in action is unlike any experience I’ve had in my two-decade tenure in this industry; our people exude professionalism and market-knowledge focusing on making our Client’s aviation dreams come true.”
Operations Move to Kansas City
As of May 1, 2017, nearly a year after the acquisition of Kansas Aircraft Corporation (KAC), the jetAVIVA operations and headquarters will move from Austin, Texas to the Kansas City area, inheriting the offices and hangars previously owned by KAC at the New Century Airport (KIXD). “Having more of our amazing staff under one roof will inevitably allow for a more seamless operation, both for our firm and our customers,” White says. “All our welcome to visit us at the airport via airplane or car anytime!”
