The jetAVIVA Team

jetAVIVA is in the dream making business

jetAVIVA was founded in 2006 as a dream by two childhood best friends, Cyrus Sigari and Ben Marcus, to create the Greatest Aircraft Sales Organization in the World. Having met at the age of 11 years old at the Santa Monica Airport as cadets in the Civil Air Patrol, the two subsequently grew jetAVIVA into the #1 light jet sales company in the world.

As a pioneer in the owner/flown light jet business, jetAVIVA has helped thousands of people enter the world of jet ownership.

In 2016, jetAVIVA acquired Kansas Aircraft Corporation, a sales leader in high-performance general aviation aircraft.

In 2017, jetAVIVA acquired Jet Quest Inc, an aircraft sales and acquisition firm specializing in the Cessna Citation family.
